Isaac McCoy, a Baptist missionary and surveyor, compiled this list of Indian tribes and their estimated populations. McCoy advocated Indian removal to western lands because he believed that the white man's influence on natives was corrupting. On this chart he listed about 45 tribes from all over the eastern United States. Only some of these tribes were relocated to Indian Territory (present-day Kansas). "Do" is an abbreviation for "ditto."

Creator: McCoy, Isaac, 1784-1846

This chart works well as a reference for the estimated populations of each tribe, and as such can be grouped with other sources to form a case study of a particular tribe that did relocate to Kansas. It also illustrates the enormity of removal.
