This is the Treaty of Lapwai Valley, an important step in restricting the Native American population of the Pacific Northwest. The Nez Perce first signed a treat with the United States in 1855, in which they ceded a large part of their territory in Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Idaho. The present treaty was negotiated for the United States by Calvin Hale, Charles Hutchins, and S.D. Howe, and this treaty provided for the further cession of the Nez Perce reserve, and the tribe's relocation to lands on the Lapwai reservation in present-day Idaho. By this treaty the Nez Perce essentially agree to subordinate themselves to American rule in all realms. The treaty was signed on behalf of the Nez Perce by several of their leaders, including Head Chief Lawyer, Timothy, and Jason, but Young Joseph (later to become Chief Joseph) refused to put his name to the agreement. This treaty was concluded on June 9, 1863, ratified by the Senate on April 17, 1867, and proclaimed by President Andrew Johnson three days later. The frustrations of Chief Joseph and other tribal leaders would culminate in the Nez Perce War a decade after its proclamation. These treaties were printed in a small number for official use.
