Map of Indian Tribes In Area

In 1967 William Sturtevant with the Smithsonian Institution put out a map of Indian tribes and their areas of cultural influence. Much of St. Tammany Parish's early history was that of the Indian tribes that inhabited the area, and their interaction with the newcomers from France and Spain.
