TREATY HISTORY

Historical Background

“The Great Spirit in his beneficence, foreseeing that this time would come when the subsistence which the forests and afforded would fail, placed these mines on our lands, so that coming generations... Might find thereby the means of subsistence. Assist us then, to reap that benefit intended for us Enable us to do this, and our hearts will be great within for we will feel that we are again a nation”.
- Chief Shingwaukonse
