Treaties—solemn agreements between sovereign nations—lie at the heart of the relationship between Indian Nations and the United States. Native nations made treaties with one another long before Europeans came to the Western Hemisphere. Sometimes coerced, invariably broken, treaties still define mutual obligations between the United States and Indian Nations. This fall the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian will display the original document of the Treaty of Fort Stanwix (1784). On loan from the National Archives, the treaty is on view in the exhibition “Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations” through spring 2020.
