Description

This book places the 1851 Treaty of Traverse des Sioux within the broad framework of state and national history.

In 1851 the Sisseton and Wahpeton bands of the Dakota Indians signed the Treaty of Traverse des Sioux, which along with the subsequent Treaty of Mendota, with the Mdewakanton and Wahpekute bands of Dakota, ceded to the United States most of southern and central Minnesota.

This study considers the national and regional background of the Treaty of Traverse des Sioux, the treaty's negotiation, provisions and implementation, and its legacy. A verbatim copy of the treaty is included in the appendix.
