About this Item

A collection of over 500 works from 1836-1979 (with a facsimile from 1826, and later typescripts of works from the 1700's) documenting the relationship between the U.S. Government and American Indians, including: treaties, information and statistics about the tribes, financial affairs between tribes and the government, the establishment of Indian reservations, and legal efforts on behalf of the Indians to enforce terms of the treaties. The collection has two parts:1. Government Section:U.S. government reports, treaties, documents with extremely detailed statistics concerning Native American tribes, and additional primary historical reference and secondary materials, including 108 volumes of Annual Reports of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs (nearly a complete run), Territorial Papers, Indian Affairs Laws and Treaties and more.2. Litigation Section:Collection of legal papers integral to claims filed in the post World War II period by American Indians against the U.S. government for failure to comply with terms of historical treaties, adjudicated by the Indian Claims Court, the U.S. Court of Claims and the Supreme Court of the United States, along with final reports of the Claims Commissioner. Including petitions, legal briefs, findings of fact and thousands of pages of typescript evidentiary documents, primarily court claimant and valuation exhibits, reply briefs, objections to findings, judgments and appeals; Indian Claims Commission Annual Reports.The combination of intensely detailed historical information and litigation documentation provides a profound and comprehensive picture of the changing status of the American Indian in the 19th and 20th centuries. The collection is a valuable source of primary materials that support the study and analysis of America's prejudice and westward expansion policies. Detailed description and finding aids available upon request. Lance Rochmes was a civil rights lawyer extensively involved in Native American legal claims during 1960-1980.
