A Scholarly Overview of Ojibwe Treaty Rights

Chippewa Treaty Rights


Although not itself a primary source, this monograph quotes liberally from so many hard to find original documents that we have included it here. It is the best single work on treaty rights in Wisconsin, tracing U.S. and Ojibwe relations from the early 19th century to 1991 and including many historical photographs unavailable anywhere else. The author was dean of Graduate Study and professor of American Indian History at Univ. of Wisconsin - Eau Claire. His book was converted to digital form and made available on the Web by the Univ. of Wisconsin, thanks to the generosity of the copyright holder, the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters.
