North America
1743, by Jacques-Nicolas Bellin

This is Jacques-Nicolas Bellin's famous 1743 map of North America which incorporates La Vérendrye's reports to French authorities in Quebec, where copies were made before transmitting them to Paris. La Vérendrye credited his western river to some birch bark and charcoal maps that were prepared by Auchagah (or Ochagach), a Cree who was described as a friend of the French nation.
