Native American Records

Native American Treaties were originally enacted between the early colonial government, state governments, and then later, the United States government with the many Native American nations.  Many of the treaties were broken almost as soon as they were written. This consistent enactment, breaking and annullment of the treaties over time by both parties forced the United State government to create a new system for dealing with the Native American population. And in 1871, the US Congress passed a law called the “Indian Appropriations Act” which effectively relegated Native Americans to tribal reservations, and made them wards of the United States Government.
