There is a lot of negativity in the news  about using the Confederate flag.  This site has a lot of history and dispels the myths about the flag.

Early 1800’s Native American Tribes

I have done quite a bit of Native American research over the past several years and when I first started I knew nothing about the names, location or the number of tribes that originally existed. Since then I have compiled listings of the tribes from various books. In addition to purchasing a small 8 x 10 map of the U.S. that shows where all the tribes were located. This map has been an enormous help. Here is a listing of the tribes that I have found. I’m sure that there probably many more tribes that I do not have listed and I apologize for their exclusion. If you know of others that I do not have, please let me know.
