Description

Indian Treaty-Making Policy in the United States and Canada 1867-1877 is a comparative study of Canadian and US treaties with Aboriginal People in the western territories of each country during the final decades of the nineteenth century. The author is an independent researcher whose dissertation examined the Numbered Treaties 1-7 (1871-1877) and the Treaties signed at Medicine Lodge (1867) and Fort Laramie (1868). The results of her research are presented in this recent book. The author has chosen comparable treaties according to geographic location and time period. The differences between perceived results relate to emigration and government civilization policies. The author looks at the common features of government policy as it relates to the Indian Nations of western Canada and the American west. Chapters cover the nature, context and problems related to treaty-making, the roles of 'others' in treaty-making, reserves, civilization policy, buffalo preservation, and hunting rights. Historical photographs, index, and comparison charts are included.
