[Washington: publisher not identified Folio (31.4 cm; 12.375"). 6,  pp.. 1866] Printed version of the treaty between the United States government and the Sans Arc Lakota signed by Newton Edmunds (governor of the Dakota Territory), Edward B. Taylor (superintendent of Indian affairs for the northern superintendency), Gen. H.H. Sibley, Wah-mun-dee-o-pee-doo-tah (The War Eagle with the Red Tail), Cha-tau-'hne (Yellow Hawk), Shon-kah-we-te-ko (The Fool Dog), and others at Fort Sully, Dakota Territory, on 20 October 1865. The treaty states that the United States will pay each family thirty dollars annually for twenty years for their decisions to "withdraw from the route overland already established," ceasing all warfare with other groups, and to settle future disputes by using the president as an arbitrator. The government promises that it will provide protection from "annoyance or molestation on the part of whites or Indians" should members of the group settle permanently to engage in agricultural pursuits, and offers further incentives for their doing so. It was ratified 5 March 1866 and later proclaimed by President Johnson on March 17.
Folded sheets, light age-toning, gentle chipping along edges; light pencilling on upper margin of title-page, bottom corner of same chipped away.
