Tribal Treaties Database

This database includes agreements between tribal nations and the United States (1778-1886) published in the 1904 work “Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties” (Volume II), compiled and edited by Charles J. Kappler. As you view the treaties in this database, editorial margin notes are included. Links to Kappler’s original text and digitized treaties held at the National Archives can also be found throughout the site. Finally, a recently updated, comprehensive index complements this work.

This database is in high demand by Indigenous people, researchers, journalists, attorneys, legislators, educators and others of both Native and non-Native origins.

Updates to this evolving database will continue into early 2022 as we build contemporary connections to present-day tribes.
