    The Garland series which was published in the 1970’s was the first attempt to address native boundaries…so called “Iroquois incursions” in the 1600s certainly muddied the waters for us in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin

    The University of New Mexico Press reprinted the original manuscript of “Felix S. Cohen’s Handbook of Federal Indian Law”, which the U.S. Dep’t. of the Interior tried to ‘censor’ and remove existing copies of, on or about 1958, but the U of NM Press reprint edition of his book has ample references to the sources of his documents, including treaties, … and “Gayaneshagowa”-the Iroquois ‘constitution’, which although ‘edited/discussed’ for fifty-five years, still made its debut sixty-five years before the Magna Carta, and availed Women the Rights to: Assert, Debate, Vote, and Declare War about 750 years before the US amended our constitution for women to vote. see 1988 US Congressional Resolution #331 –acknowledging the role of the Iroquois Constitution in the development of our US ‘constitution.

    I feel like the Pocumtuck borders should extend further north. IIRC, the village of Pocumtuck itself was a bit north of the Anglo village of Old Deerfield, Massachusetts. In addition, the 1676 massacre that drove the Pocumtuck out of the region happened at Peskeompscut, which was near the site of modern Turner’s Falls.

    Overlapping boundaries looks to be the only way to do it. The map represents an impressive bunch of research with a great presentation. Good work. ;]
