      Summary

      Treaties made in the 1800s between the United States and the Indigenous nations of what is now Wisconsin had profound influence on the regions cultural and political landscape. Yet few people realize that in the early part of the century, the Menominee and Ho-Chunk Nations of Wisconsin signed land treaties with several Indigenous nations from New York State.

      In this groundbreaking book, Carol Cornelius has compiled a careful account of these nation-to-nation treaties, in large part in the words of the Indigenous leaders who served as the voices and representatives of their nations. Drawing on a rich collection of primary sources, Cornelius walks readers through how, why, and for whom these treaties were made and how the federal governments failure and unwillingness to acknowledge their legitimacy led to the further loss of Indigenous lands. The living documents transcribed here testify to the complexity and sovereignty of Indigenous governance then and now, making this volume a vital resource for historians and an accessible introduction to Indigenous treatymaking in Wisconsin.
