Term: Menominee Treaty of 1848


Agreement negotiated October 18 at Lake Poygan, Wis., with the Menominee, who ceded all their remaining lands in Wisconsin; its provisions were not carried out, however, as Chief Oshkosh in 1852 persuaded President Fillmore to permit the tribe to remain on the Wolf River; their current reservation was included in the treaty of 1854.
