[Washington. 1866]. 6pp. Folio. Original printed self-wrappers. Very light soiling to extremities, else fine. One of a series of important treaties negotiated at Fort Sully in Dakota Territory with several bands of Sioux, this one with the Sans Arcs band, which helped lessen hostilities in the area. Negotiated by territorial Governor Newton Edmunds, Indian Affairs Superintendent Edward Taylor, and Generals S.R. Curtis and H.H. Sibley, among others, by this treaty the Sans Arcs agreed to cease their hostilities against the United States and its citizens, and acknowledged the authority of the United States. Furthermore, in return for "the sum of thirty dollars for each lodge or family, annually, for twenty years" the Sans Arcs agree to "withdraw from the routes overland already established, or hereafter to be established, through their country" and to cease attacks upon other bands of Sioux. The treaty was concluded on October 20, 1865, ratified by the Senate on March 5, and proclaimed by President Andrew Johnson on March 17, 1866. An important treaty with the Sioux tribe, printed in a small number for official use. EBERSTADT INDIAN TREATIES 130. Bookseller Inventory #
