Term: Ojibwe Treaty of 1842
Definition: Agreement negotiated Oct. 4 at LaPointe, Wis. (Madeline Island), with the Ojibwe, who ceded all their remaining lands in Wisconsin and Michigan; Ojibwe leaders, however, protested that in this and the 1837 treaty they had only given the U.S. rights to use the products of the land and had never ceded ownership.
