From the Navajo Times:

Carapella recently released “Map of our Tribal Nations: Our Own Names and Original Locations,” which shows 584 North American tribes and roughly where they were located (since most tribes were nomadic, and there weren’t any boundaries to speak of, Carapella has placed the name of the tribe over the area where its people originally lived before being displaced by European settlers).
Carapella is pretty well convinced it’s the first map of its kind.
"I’ve never seen anything like it before," he said. "I can definitely say it’s the first time anyone has copyrighted this."
Clarenda Begay, exhibit curator at the Navajo Nation Museum, agrees.
"This is the first time I have seen this," she emailed after being directed to Carapella’s Web site. "What an informative map!"
Carapella made it precisely because other maps he looked at were so uninformative.

"You can get maps of what our reservations look like now," he noted. "And you can get maps that have, like, the 50 main tribes. But I was interested in what our land really looked like circa 1490, before Columbus got here."
