Description


This is a 1915 U.S. Department of the Interior map of the United States. The map depicts the United States from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean and from Canada to Mexico and the Gulf of Mexico. Illustrated on the map are the Indian reservations that had been established as of 1915 and are depicted by shading. Various symbols are utilized to denote different institutions present on the reservations, including non-reservation schools, boarding schools, day schools, sanitoriums, mission schools non-contract, and insane asylums. A legend is located along the bottom border. Three inset maps are included in the bottom left corner which depict the Indian Pueblo Grants in New Mexico, Northeastern Oklahoma, and the Mission Indian Reservations in California. Myriad rivers are depicted throughout the country, and the solid black lines that crisscross from coast to coast represent railroads.

This map was produced by the Department of the Interior and engraved and printed by the U.S. Geological Survey.
