Indian Land Cessions 1784-1894

Charles C. Royce compiled The Schedule of Indian Land Cessions and 67 maps outlining those land cessions as the second part of the two-part Eighteenth Annual Report of the Bureau of American Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, 1896-1897. Part two was also printed as House Document No. 736 of the U.S. Serial Set, 56th Congress, 1st Session. The MS Word documents below are tables compiled from the Indian Land Cessions in the United States available on the Library of Congress Website. Each table contains the map number assigned by Charles Royce, the name of the map or maps on which that number appears, the counties encompassed by the treaty as traced by National NAGPRA staff, the tribal name used in the treaty, and the name of the present-day Indian tribe or tribes when it was possible to ascertain those names. When present-day tribes could not be determined, the field was left blank. These documents are intended for use by museums, agencies, and tribes as an aid to consultation. Use these tables in addition to the Native American Consultation Database. A listing of treaties and executive orders by date, place, and reference is available in the MS Word document Land Cession Treaties and Executive Orders.
