Focus on Treaties for Native American Heritage Month
FEATURE STORY During the month of November, the United States commemorates National Native American Heritage Month, which recognizes the rich culture and historical importance of the indigenous peoples who first settled this land. Many events taking place during National Native American Heritage Month, such as Minnesota's "Why Treaties Matter" traveling exhibit, honor the different tribes who have shaped this country while acknowledging the challenges that Native Americans have faced and their complex relationship with the United States. READ MORE NEED TO KNOW For nearly 100 years, from 1778 to 1869, the United States negotiated treaties with Native American nations. In this section, an introductory essay provides an overview of the history and significance of the treaty making process, and a large selection of supporting reference entries and primary source documents offer students a unique opportunity to enhance their understanding of Native American treaties. READ MORE EXAMINE In what ways do treaties negotiated long ago affect the lives of Native Americans today? Find answers to this question by exploring the ongoing case of the Cherokee freedmen, former slaves (and their descendants) owned by the Cherokee. This activity encourages students to test their knowledge of treaties and develop critical thinking skills by analyzing a key primary source document and reading supporting essays related to Native Americans, the Civil War, and Reconstruction.

Encyclopedia of American Indian Removal
Treaties with American Indians: An Encyclopedia of Rights, Conflicts, and Sovereignty is the first comprehensive introduction to the treaties that promised land, self-government, financial assistance, and cultural protections to many of the over 500 tribes of North America (including Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada). More The American Mosaic: The American Indian Experience is an online collection featuring hundreds of reference content, primary documents, and images. From precontact into the 21st century, and from the Inuit of Alaska to the Seminole of Florida, AIE is an indispensable electronic research and learning resource. More Encyclopedia of American Indian Removal presents a realistic depiction of removal as a complicated process that was deeply affected by political, economic, and tribal factors, rather than the popular romanticized concept of American Indians being herded west by military troops through a trackless wilderness.
