Tribal Villages

Native American Records

The location of tribal towns and villages is often a controversial topic for researchers. Unfortunately, early map makers and journalists didn’t have the expertise needed, let alone the linguistic knowledge, to properly spell and identify the locations of the early tribal villages. Further compounding this, was that most Native American tribes were quite adept at picking up whole villages and relocating when the older village location fell out of favor.

The attempt of this work is to provide all known spellings and references for early tribal villages and towns. By collating such information, this work becomes an extremely unique and valuable reference tool for the researcher. Tribal villages and tribal names are often one and the same… as such, many listings on these pages will take you to smaller tribe pages… that is normally due to the only known sources referencing the village as a tribe, instead of identifying the unique tribe the village descended from.
