1 Introduction The word treaty could be defined in many ways It is most likely to be defined as agreements made between two nations But to the Indians treaties were simply an inevitable agreement which the whites requested The madness started when the European explorers reached North America The Indians lived scattered in the area Some lived a semi-nomadic lifestyle moving from camp to camp to harvest vital foods such as maple sap venison and wild rice according to the seasons Because of the greed from the European settlers the Indians were forced to move from one position to another As more and more settlers pushed into the west region in search of timber and rare minerals the United States government has made many treaties with the Indians Most of the treaties were for large amounts of land that were exchanged for promises of small amounts of money schooling equipment and food 2 For Example The United States government bought land from the Ojibwe Indians through cession treaties Vast quantities of land were exchanged for promises of small amounts of money schooling equipment and whatever the Ojibwe desired In 1825 the Ojibwe Indians participated in a treaty that defined the boundaries of Great Chippewa Nation and the Great Sioux Nation The United States recognized that the Ojibwe owned vast acres of what are now Minnesota Wisconsin and Michigan They encouraged the signing of the 1825 treaty in order to end continuing land disputes between the Ojibwe and the Sioux and secure a peaceful frontier for settlers The Ojibwe leaders kept the right to hunt fish and gather on lands they sold to the United States government in the mid 1800s This would ensure that future generations would be able to survive and always have access to food and supplies 3People who do not tolerate the treaty rights The rise of anti-Indian organization and national networking correlates with the recent strengthening of tribal governments
