Caddo Indian Treaties

  • Indian Affairs, Laws & Treaties, Vol. 2  $
    As the United States expanded westward from the original thirteen colonies, settlers often confronted the existing owners of the land. As a result the federal government often negotiated treaties with these Native Americans. This collection of official treaties was compiled by the United States and originally printed in 1904. It contains the full text of nearly a hundred treaties between the government and such tribes as the Delaware, Seneca, Yakima, and Sioux. Ranging from the late 1700’s through the end of the 19th Century, each treaty includes the names of those present, both U.S. representatives and Native American tribal chiefs. Apart from the historical importance of these documents, for those seeking ancestors who were involved in treaty negotiations, this can be an illuminating database.

Villages of the Algonquian, Siouan and Caddoan Tribes West of the Mississippi
Life on the prairies or mountains with the best built house had to be hard for our ancestors, but consider the Indians of the 1800’s.  With few implements, or tools, they constructed their homes from their surroundings.
