Indian Treaties in the United States: An Encyclopedia and Documents Collection

Contributors: Fixico, Donald;
Abstract:

This book examines the treaties that promised self-government, financial assistance, cultural protections, and land to the more than 565 tribes of North America (including Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada).


• Examines more than twenty primary source documents from treaties made between American Indians and the U.S. government between the late 18th and 19th centuries

• Contextualizes primary source documents with essays on topics such as treaty-making, the American Indian perspective, and treaties made between the Civil War and Reconstruction period to help students more fully understand their significance

• Includes images of original, signed treaties negotiated between tribes and the U.S. government, which offers visual learners concrete evidence by which to connect with the events that transpired

• Includes key terms such as "doctrine of discovery," "guardianship," and "sovereignty," enabling students to grasp the complexity of federal negotiations
