In 1880, a Native American named Paul Kandik and a French explorer, Francois Mercier, traveled across northeastern Alaska and western Canada to create the earliest known map of the region. Linda Johnson now delves into the fascinating story behind the Kandik Map, examining the reasons why and how these two men from such different backgrounds combined their extensive knowledge of the country to map the Kandik River region. Drawing on historical letters, geographical analysis, and the original map itself, Johnson produces a groundbreaking study of the history of the Kandik Map and reveals its significant implications for Native American scholarship.
