Indians geographical positioning in the SYW

Had a nice email from a gentleman from Slovenia with a request for help - maybe you all might know the answer - the question is - where do you find a decent map of the positions of all the Indian nations at the time of the Seven Years War? He's got the Osprey one in the Woodland indians one...I can't think of anything else at the moment. Maybe the book Atlas of Great Lakes Indians might have it - I don't have it but I think there was a fairly accurate map of the Ohio Indians there but don't buy it just on my failing memory. Some of the period maps made by the French had some Indian nations on - not sure - anyone know about this subject?


  1. I suggest you reccommend that this Gentleman searches: "French and Indian War maps" in Google Images, there are lots there.


  2. The Tanner book: "Atlas of Great lakes Indian History" is good. I think it has been reprinted too.

  3. The Atlas of Great Lakes Indian History is a superb reference, and shows not just Indian nation "boundaries" but where exactly each settlement was located. Unfortunately, this information is limited to the Great Lakes region, and does not include eastern Canada, or the southern U.S.
