Item Information

Title:
A map of North America, denoting the boundaries of the yearly meetings of Friends and the locations of the various Indian tribes
Description:
America Transformed: From the earliest European settlements in North America through the 19th century, Catholic and Protestant missionaries took part in evangelizing missionary expeditions to Native communities. One particularly active religious group was the Society of Friends, or Quakers. Besides detailing the missionary activities of the various regional Yearly Meetings, their 1844 annual report included this map which shows the extent of each Yearly Meeting as well as the lands in the Great Plains allotted to eastern tribes. It also depicts the distribution of Indigenous communities in the western half of the country.
