This map represents all the surveys of Indian lands completed by missionary Isaac McCoy between the years 1830 and 1836. McCoy, a missionary to the Ottawa and Pottawatomie tribes in Michigan, was convinced that Indians should be moved to new lands west of the Mississippi River. He took some Indian delegates on exploring missions in addition to his work as surveyor, missionary, and teacher. The map was redrawn by H. J. Adams.

Creator: McCoy, Isaac, 1784-1846
Date: 1830-1836

This is an excellent visual for showing land allotments shortly after the process of Indian removal began. This can work in tandem with sources dealing with any of the tribes mentioned on the map (including the Delaware, Kickapoo, Kansa, and Ottawa, among others). Also, the details of the visuals should pique students' interest.
