#13 - John Tyler Document Signed Estimate: $600+

President Tyler ratifies a treaty to compensate "the Wyandott Nation of Indians"

Partly-printed DS as president, one page, 8 x 10, October 5, 1842. President Tyler authorizes and directs the Secretary of State to affix "the seal of the United States to the ratification of a Treaty between the United States of America, and the Wyandott Nation of Indians." Signed nicely at the conclusion by John Tyler. In fine condition, with light toning to the right edge.

The Wyandotte Nation are descendants of the Wendat Confederacy and Native Americans with territory near Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. Under pressure from Iroquois and other tribes, then from European settlers and the United States government, the tribe gradually moved south and west to Ohio, Michigan, Kansas, and finally to Oklahoma. In 1842, the Wyandotte lost all of their land east of the Mississippi River, under pressure of the U.S. government policy to remove the Native Americans to the west. The treaty referenced in this document would compensate the Wyandotte for their lands.
