This map is somewhat difficult to read, but very interesting to those of us in California. I bought this off Ebay a couple years ago. Has anyone ever seen this before? I'd love to find out more info on it or even share it w/ native people who might be interested.

    Awesome find! I'm a Californian and would love to see this map up close. Reminds me of something found in the Southwest Museum in LA, which was founded by a man named Charles Loomis, who was somewhat an expert on California Indian culture 100 years or so ago.

    This is so interesting! I love old maps and have a few. It's interesting to see how lands and lines grow and change. Thanks so much for posting this.

    Ho2..Are there possibly any Indian reservations nearby or in California whom you may share this with??..Looking at my atlas now I see some small ones, such as the 'Hoopa Valley', by Eureka..The closest to you appears to be 'Round Valley' in North Medocino County....and yes..very neat map!!!
