New York (State) treaties with the Oneida Nation

 Collection
Identifier: Ayer-MS-428

Abstract

This collection includes five treaties and two supporting documents, one indenture and one agreement, between New York State and the Oneida Nation for the cession of certain tribal lands, executed between 1788 and 1811. In these treaties the Oneida Indians eventually sold much of their reservation lands primarily held in Madison and Oneida counties, N.Y. Each treaty generally describes the land to be purchased, the terms of the sale, and the names and signatures of all parties involved in the negotiations. The following treaty dates and locations are included in this collection: Sept. 22, 1788 (Fort Stanwix), June 1, 1798 (Oneida village), June 4, 1802 (Oneida village), Mar. 3, 1810 (Albany), Feb. 27, 1811 (Albany).
