During those years I was lucky enough to enjoy the greatest outdoor show on earth, the Calgary Stampede.
The collection of Google Maps contains about 15, feature-rich placemarks with live links to web resources organized topically and usually with dates, and the Google Earth viewer allows seeing the entire collection at once.
The overarching idea is to portray accurately and in detail the great change that swept the American landscape between andor the first Essay on siksika centuries of native-European contact before the creation of the United States and the following century of federal warfare against the remnant tribes in pursuit of Manifest Destiny.

For further assistance and news of additions and changes, visit the Native America Project on Facebook. In addition to the Google Maps, the Google Earth collection, and the Facebook page Native America ProjectI have compiled a massive research library that is accessible online for research, with over 14, titles categorized along lines similar to the Google Maps and I am adding to this collection steadily.
The Native America Project Online Library is best used by selecting one of the main categories from the drop-down menu at top left, and then searching inside that category using the lower search window at top right "search your library", not the "search site" window above it, which searches all libraries in the librarything.
For example, to search titles pertaining to the Creeks, select "Native America Project" and enter "Creek" in the window current titles.
The "Fur Trade" category has current titles. To search Native American trails in Ohio, select the "Transportation" category and enter "Ohio" in the search window current titles. The "Online" category itself currently has 2, full-text titles, so nearly one in six of all NAP titles are available online, and most of these valuable works of history are otherwise completely inaccessible to almost everyone except professors with grants at high-endowment research universities, and these professors are not numerous or energetic about using these resources.
This library is far more comprehensive than any research compilation generated heretofore in any University, and will reveal to any tenured history professor resources he or she in not familiar with within minutes.
Likewise, any student of Native American history can accomplish in minutes what would otherwise require several weeks to accomplish in traditional bibliographic research in libraries and online. Similar corrective work has been done for state and university archaeological and historical archives around the country, such as the Massachusetts Archaeological Society articles indexedthe Connecticut Archaeological Society titles and many more.
As another example, there is a "Bibliography of Bibliographies" in the NAP Library that currently contains titles, compared to standard academic bibliographies that contain perhaps or fewer titles. These are bibliographic titles. The ACTUAL place names or original Indian names for towns and villages and counties and states and rivers and streams and mountains and the like is another on-going compilation locating each place name on the Google Map series and making them available on the Google Earth collection: The Susquehanna Valley has nearly identified Indian place names.
New England has over 1, The same is being done for all US states and Canadian provinces. Altogether, this NAP online research collection is not only searchable online, but it is far more complete than anything that has ever existed for Native American history.
The complete Native American Project is a colossal, and b in progress. If you would like to volunteer assistance, please send me email at geoff puttingzone. I have been asking for academic professors to support this project with direct or indirect assistance, including helping sponsor grant proposals for funding to take the NAP to the next level: The response so far has been shamefully unenergetic.
