This chapter explores the ways in which changes in maps and in navigation influenced European attitudes and approaches toward early colonial ventures. Mapping shaped European expectations about North America and European actions toward other peoples there. The chapter explores the growing influence of maps, mapping, and navigation on early modern English and Dutch culture and demonstrates that mapping and navigation were inseparable from careful observation of peoples as well as lands and waterways in this period. As such, mapping and navigation helped to propel Europeans' efforts to form alliances with Native Americans.

Keywords:   mapping, maps, navigation, observation, English, Dutch, Native American, alliances
