Colonialism in a nutshell

From Youtube: "A short clip of Atta kul kulla's talk at Fort Dobbs in North Carolina--talking about his trip to England and meeting the King and how the Yamasee War and the taking of native slaves sparked the alliance between the Cherokees and the English until the late 1750s. Robert Rambo presented an engaging and interesting talk which gives a peek into the Cherokee warrior and the home life of Cherokee natives."

A MAP!!!

Major towns are RED
Indian Nations are BROWN
Rivers are BLUE
Geographical Regions are GREEN
The rivers look different here than on a modern map because this story takes place approximately 80-90 years before the rivers were dammed for hydroelectric plants. Those large lakes you can see on modern maps are artificial in other words.

I've tried to strike a balance between "vintage" looking and readability. Please, if you have trouble reading this, email me (arkiv2001 at gmail.com) and I'll upload a cleaner version!
