Brief Description: Map relates to the beginnings of the American Indian reservation system through the late 1860's. Very likely it was the official document used by the Indian Bureau and William Keeler to document and update the locations of the reservations and also the mineral deposits. Manuscript annotations indicate reservation boundaries outlined in different colors. Each is labeled with relevant treaty dates or proclamation of the reservation. Included is a colored map key or "explanation" indicating the locations of gold, silver, copper, quicksilver, iron and coal. The reservations were located away from the mineral deposits. Map also shows railroads, forts, military posts and proposed railway track.
