Treaty with the Potawatomi [1867]


On February 27, 1861, the Citizen Potawatomi entered into a treaty with the United States that established a new reservation for the Tribe in Indian Territory. Drafted to alleviate pressures the Citizen Potawatomi were facing following the Treaty of 1861 and subsequent allotment of reservation lands in Kansas, the new 1867 treaty stipulated that those who would move south were required to finance the migration on their own. Using the proceeds from the sale of their Kansas allotments, the Anderson, Bergeron, Clardy, Melot, Pettifer, and Toupin families were the first Citizen Potawatomi to live on the Oklahoma reservation.
