The Treaties

Click here to browse the Treaties!

Oklahoma State University has digitized the Treaties between the US government and native nations that are contained in Charles Kappler's Indian Treaties: 1778-1883 and they are available online! The Treaties are organized both alphabetically by the name of the nation, and also chronologically by the year they were signed. Follow the above link to see the Treaties organized alphabetically by tribal name.
