Levels One and Two of
the Deep Map.
The initial entry point is on
Level Two. Level One
is available by clicking the "Zoom Out" button, and is useful for
seeing large patterns and for navigating across the reaches of the continent.
In the area between Lake Superior and the Black Hills, Level Two is also the home for
an on-going project to bring a merged map of the tracts ceded by Native
American tribes to the U. S. to the Archive site, annotated with details
from the treaties and other actions. It is available from the "land
cessions" time-line button in the other maps of that area. More area
will be added with time. Level
Two can be zoomed into by clicking on an area
of a Level One map. Choose the "1640"
time window from the button or drop down list to see the patterns of native habitation at that time. Click on a
tribe to see the imbedded information about them. Once a group or an area
of the "Treaty Map" has been
chosen, that information will remain in the upper frames until you zoom
deeper into the map in the Saint Paul area.
