  • (Oklahoma-Indian Territory) Enclosure No. 3.

    With generous language supplied by the Indian Agency, a treaty was reached with the Cheyenne and Arapahoe regarding grazing rights for their land in the Indian Territory. Considering that "there is a large portion of our reservation, amounting to about 2,400,000 acres, which is almost worthless for agricultural purposes and unoccupied by our people (excepting a few families), which is bringing us no revenues, and as our cattle herds at present are very few and small"... and in return shall be paid annually "not less than two cents per acre". This map printed in red shows the major rivers and reservations boundaries with black print dividing the majority of the reservation to ranchers. Comes with a few text pages pertaining to the treaty.
