  • CBC - 8th Fire - Maps
    this day Heidenreich s detailed and painstakingly researched map first published in the Historical Atlas of Canada in 1987 remains a crucial work which set a very high standard for future geographers to follow Linguistic Families 17th Century is reproduced here with the kind permission of Conrad Heidenreich and the University of Toronto Press HISTORY MAP 2 Estimated Tribal Distributions at the Time of Contact As it is impossible for a single map to reflect precisely the many numerous different Aboriginal tribes and populations from over 500 years ago this map aims to present an estimate of major tribal distributions in and around the land that is now known as Canada at the time Europeans first settled Initial European settlement and contact with Aboriginal Peoples was made in the east and gradually moved westward across the vast continent thereby impacting different tribes at different times It is therefore important to see this map as an approximation and not a definitive outline of various and diverse indigenous populations The layout of this map is based on a map from Canada s First Nations A History of Founding Peoples from Earliest Times by Olive Patricia Dickason with David T McNab Oxford University Press Canada 2009 Reprinted by permission of the publisher TREATIES AND LAND CLAIMS This map entitled Treaties and Comprehensive Land Claims in Canada was produced by Legal Surveys Division Geomatics Canada Natural Resources Canada in May 2004 When referencing this most recent edition of the map it is useful to note that as stated in the map s legend The lines on this map represent the approximate boundaries of traditional territories described in First Nation Statements of Intent to negotiate treaties which have been submitted to and accepted The boundaries are illustrative only and may be revised in the future
