While it shows the Santa Fe Road, the route of Col. Dodge is not depicted. The map covers the region of present day Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma. The tribal lands are outlined in color. An inset provides tabulations of the numbers of Indians and a listing of estimated acres of land assigned to these Tribes. Ref: Wheat [TMW] 418. Trimmed into neatline at right with some toning along that edge, else very good.
