Not so much for trip planning, per se, but to help understand the history of the land you might be standing on - Check out Native Land Digital.

 

It's fully interactive and allows you to explore various known territories of indigenous peoples, areas where various languages were/are spoken, and more. You toggle various layers, including modern day government boarders.

 

What I find interesting about it is that many of the layers overlap and all are "clickable". When you click on a layer, you are presented with links to various 3rd party websites, many of them operated by various tribal nations or other sources, with pretty in-depth information related to the land and language local to that area.

 

Pretty darn cool and adds some extra depth to your travels, in my opinion. 

 

This article on Gaia has a nice backstory on the origins of the mapping project and some more detailed information on its ongoing progress.
