Map of the New World, with European settlements and American Indian tribes, 1730

A primary source by Matthew Seutter

Recens Edita totius Novi Belgii [New Netherland - New York], 1730. (Gilder LehrmThis map, “Recens edita totius Novi Belgii in America Septentrionali,” depicts present-day New England, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and parts of Maryland and Pennsylvania. Created by Dutch mapmakers in 1730, the map reflects the struggle for territory in the region, referring to places by their Dutch, English, and American Indian names.

While the map itself is from a later period of American history, when Europeans were already settled along the coast, the map provides information on where some American Indian tribes were located and information about the native people, flora, and fauna in the New World, as Europeans perceived it.
