Treaty of Canandaigua One of the earliest treaties negotiated under the Constitution, the 1794 Treaty of Canadaigua confirmed the peace between the United States and the Six Nations of the Haudenoshaunee Confederacy. The original document, signed by George Washington, is currently on display in our new exhibition, Nation to Nation. The Treaty of Canandaigua, 1794. Parchment, ink, resin and wafer seals, ribbon. National Archives, Washington, DC.
Treaties Over time, and through increasing pressure from an ever expanding and encroaching post-Revolutionary War United States, the Seneca signed a series of treaties with the federal and state governments, which were designed to ensure the Seneca exclusive ownership of territories - admittedly, significantly reduced tracts of land from their earlier vast holdings as the largest member nation of the Iroquois Confederacy. Rather than being vanquished and subjugated by the United States, the Seneca negotiated treaties that would ostensibly enable them to conduct their lives without the imperious hand of a conquering American government - either state or federal. Significant treaties between the Seneca Nation and federal and state governments, along with associated relevant activities, are: 1784 The Fort Stanwix Treaty, the very first treaty entered into between the Six Nations and the United States, is signed. It illustrates that the parties regarded each other as sovereigns who were both claiming a right ...
Tribal History The Cayuga Nation is known as "The People of the Great Swamp". Cayugas are one the original five members of the Haudenosaunee "The People of the Longhouse". The Cayuga Nation's homeland is found in the Finger Lakes Region of a territory now called New York. Cayuga Lake and its northern shores were the primary locations of many villages of the Cayuga people. They are said to be found between their two brothers, the Onondaga (to the east) and the Seneca (to the west). The Cayuga, Onondaga, Seneca, Onieda and Mohawk are the original members of the Haudenosaunee (or Iroquois Confederacy). Their way of life was admired by many of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. Many goverance principles of the Haudenosaunee were installed into the American form of governance. These principles were given to the Haudenosaunee as gifts from the Peacemaker. As the American colonists and the British began to war against each other, Cayugas and other members of the Haudenosaunee were caught in th ...
THE MYTH OF THE LOYALIST IROQUOIS Joseph Brant and the Invention of a Canadian Tradition by James Paxton, Queen’s University Presented at the Iroquois Research Conference on October 6, 2002. The American Revolution smashed the Iroquois Confederacy and dispersed the remnant over several communities in Upper Canada and New York. While historians have profitably studied different aspects of the New York Iroquois in the postwar era, the Six Nations of Ontario have attracted relatively little attention. Canadian scholars usually interpret them as loyalists rather than Iroquois. By casting the Six Nations of Upper Canada as loyalists, scholars assume the Iroquois acted out of the same sense of duty that compelled Euroamerican loyalists to reject the revolution. Although durable, this interpretation masks the cultural roots of their motivations and behaviour and subsumes native independence under a rubric of loyalty that the Iroquois themselves resolutely rejected. The myth of Iroquois loyalty is intimately ti ...
For November 11 ~ 1794: A treaty (7 stat. 44) is concluded at Canandaigua (Konondaigua), New York, with the "Six Nations." The United States acknowledges the treaties signed by the Six Nations and New York. Boundaries are established. The Six Nations will not submit further land claims. A wagon trail is established from Fort Schlosser to Buffalo Creek on Lake Erie. The Indians receive $10,000 in goods now. The annuity agreed to in the treaty of April 3, 1792 is increased from $1500 to $4500 in goods. The treaty is signed by Thomas Pickering for the United States, and by fifty-nine Indians. 1865: Medicine Bottle and Little Shakopee, two of the leaders of the Santee Sioux uprising are executed at Pine Knob. They both had escaped to Canada, but officials there aided Americans in their kidnapping, and return to the United States. (From Phil Konstantin's website)
Treaty with The Six Nations (Treaty of Fort Stanwix) October 22nd, 1784 Articles concluded at Fort Stanwix, on the twenty-second day of October, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-four, between Oliver Wolcott, Richard Butler, and Arthur Lee, Commissioners Plenipotentiary from the United States, in Congress assembled, on the one Part, and the Sachems and Warriors of the Six Nations, on the other.

Article II. The Oneida and Tuscarora nations shall be secured in the possession of the lands on which t ...
The Lenape (/ləˈnɑːpi/) are Native American people in Canada and the United States. They are also called Delaware Indians after their historic territory along the Delaware River. As a result of disruption following the American Revolutionary War and later Indian removals from the eastern United States, the main groups now live in Ontario (Canada), Wisconsin, and Oklahoma. In Canada, they are enrolled in the Munsee-Delaware Nation 1, the Moravian of the Thames First Nation, and the Delaware of Six Nations. In the United States, they are enrolled in three federally recognized tribes, that is, the Delaware Nation and the Delaware Tribe of Indians, both located in Oklahoma, and the Stockbridge-Munsee Community, located in Wisconsin. In Delaware, they are organized and state-recognized as the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware. The Ramapough Mountain Indians and the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape identify as Lenape descendants and are recognized as tribes by the state of New Jersey. At the time of European contact in ...
If nothing is coming up why would these orders be neccisary many of which Obama created FEMA Executive Orders people have referred to it as the "secret government" of the United States. It is not an elected body, it does not involve itself in public disclosures, and it even has a quasi-secret budget in the billions of dollars. This government organization has more power than the President of the United States or the Congress, it has the power to suspend laws, move entire populations, arrest and detain citizens without a warrant and hold them without trial, it can seize property, food supplies, transportation systems, and can suspend the Constitution. Not only is it the most powerful entity in the United States, but it was not even created under Constitutional law by the Congress. It was a product of a Presidential Executive Order. No, it is not the U.S. military nor the Central Intelligence Agency, they are subject to Congress. The organization is called FEMA, which stands for the Federal Emergency Manag ...

A CONVERSATION ABOUT LIFE by Jim Denison "In 1973, I was a freshman in high school. "Pong" was the most popular video game; "All in the Family" was the most popular television show. The average home cost $32,000; gas was 40 cents a gallon. Secretariat won the Triple Crown; Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs in a tennis match; barcodes were invented. "How the world has changed since then. But nothing that happened in 1973 has affected our nation nearly so much as an event that occurred on January 22 of that year. On that date, the Supreme Court issued its ruling that the constitutional right to privacy makes it legal for women to obtain an abortion. Since that time, more than 55 million abortions have been performed in the United States. "Every year, 32,000 Americans die on our nation's highways; every 10 days, that number of abortions is performed in this country. This is an average of 3,322 abortions every day of the year. "What are the facts on this issue? What can you do to make a difference ...
The United States Department of Agriculture is likely to approve a horse slaughtering plant in New Mexico in the next two months, which would allow equine meat suitable for human consumption to be produced in the United States for the first time since 2007. The plant, in Roswell, N.M., is owned by Valley Meat Company, which sued the U.S.D.A. and its Food Safety and Inspection Service last fall over the lack of inspection services for horses going to slaughter. Horse meat cannot be processed for human consumption in the United States without inspection by the U.S.D.A., so horses destined for that purpose have been shipped to places like Mexico and Canada for slaughter. Justin DeJong, a spokesman for the agriculture department, said that "several" companies had asked the agency to re-establish inspection of horses for slaughter. "These companies must still complete necessary technical requirements and the F.S.I.S. must complete its inspector training," he wrote in an e-mail referring to the food inspection ...
New treaties were drafted and those indigenous nations that had lost their territories in the United States, or simply wished to not live under the US government, were granted new land in Canada by the King. The Mohawk Nation was one such group, which abandoned its Mohawk Valley territory, in present day New York State, after Americans destroyed the natives' settlement, including the chapel donated by Queen Anne following the visit to London of the Four Mohawk Kings. As compensation, George III promised land in Canada to the Six Nations and, in 1784, some Mohawks settled in what is now the Bay of Quinte and the Grand River Valley, where North America's only two Chapels Royal—Christ Church Royal Chapel of the Mohawks and Her Majesty's Chapel of the Mohawks—were built to symbolise the connection between the Mohawk people and the Crown.[42][47] Thereafter, the treaties with aboriginals across southern Ontario were dubbed the Covenant Chain and ensured the preservation of First Nations' rights not provide ...
On this day in Black History (Lengthy but informative): We celebrate the life of Harriet Tubman, speculated to be born on this day in 1820. Tubman was a black abolitionist who escaped from slavery and returned to the South repeatedly to lead other African slaves to freedom. Harriet Tubman was born Araminta "Minty" Ross to slave parents, Harriet ("Rit") Green and Ben Ross. Rit was owned by Mary Pattison Brodess (and later her son Edward). Ben was held by Anthony Thompson, who became Mary's second husband, and who ran a large plantation near Blackwater River in Madison, Maryland. As with many slaves in the United States, the exact year nor place of Araminta's birth was recorded, and historians differ as to the best estimate. Kate Larson records the year 1822, based on a midwife payment and several other historical documents, including her runaway advertisement while Jean Humez says "the best current evidence suggests that Tubman was born in 1820, but it might have been a year or two later." Catherine Clinto ...
December 14, 2012   Greetings,   To Whom It May Concern:   I, Stephanie Big Eagle, (Wankiya Waci), and my children, are descendants and citizens of the Great Sioux Nation of Indians, and also descendents of the Six Nations of Indians of the Iroquois, who are living under the One-Row Wampum Belt Declaration of Sovereignty. We have unfortunately been subject to the victimization of Child Protection Services (CPS) since October 2010 by the State of South Dakota and Indiana. My children have been removed from me with little to no ADEQUATE proof of abuse or neglect as defined by Child Protection Services' definitions of abuse and/or neglect. This has been the cause of unnecessary pain, suffering, and trauma to all of us ever since.   I am just an ordinary person and most importantly, disenfranchised mother (meaning a mother illegitimately deprived of her right to be a mother) who now intends to seek positive reform of this agency for its violations of the following in our particular circumstance:   . the ...
International basketball XX. Olympic games Munich 1972 Krešimir Ćosić of Yugoslavia (blue shirt) vs. Petr Novicky of Czechoslovakia The International Basketball Federation was formed in 1932 by eight founding nations: Argentina, Czechoslovakia, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Romania and Switzerland. At this time, the organization only oversaw amateur players. Its acronym, derived from the French Fédération Internationale de Basketball Amateur, was thus "FIBA". Men's Basketball was first included at the Berlin 1936 Summer Olympics, although a demonstration tournament was held in 1904. The United States defeated Canada in the first final, played outdoors. This competition has usually been dominated by the United States, whose team has won all but three titles, the first loss in a controversial final game in Munich in 1972 against the Soviet Union. In 1950 the first FIBA World Championship for men was held in Argentina. Three years later, the first FIBA World Championship for Women was held in Chile. ...
It's time to take a cold look at what U.S. goals in Iraq should be. After some 4,470 U.S. military deaths, 33,000 wounded and almost $800 billion spent in the past eight years, there should be greater clarity about what the United States hopes to accomplish, even in the next 12 months. When U.S. combat troops leave by the end of this year, U.S. Ambassador to Iraq James Jeffrey will be in charge of some 11,000 diplomats, aid workers, military and civilian contract trainers and more than 5,000 private security personnel. The salaries and programs will cost U.S. taxpayers at least another $5 billion. But first, let's pause for a flashback. It's Feb. 27, 2003. The country had been prepped for months with stories about the threat from Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. More than 100,000 U.S. troops are poised to invade. Then-Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz tells the House Budget Committee that Iraqis represented "23 million of the most educated people in the Arab world, who are going to welc ...
SPOTY - 2012 was also the year that saw Wales secure their 11th Grand Slam in the Six Nations, Andy Murray's historic US Open triumph, Manchester City's remarkable comeback to win the Premier League title, Chelsea's Champions League victory, Bradley Wiggins's Tour de France triumph, Rory Mcilroy's record-breaking win at the US PGA Championship which cemented his status as the world number one golfer, and Europe's sensational eleventh-hour victory over the United States in the Ryder Cup. What a year!
Australian Sports Pundit Complaining Ireland are not part of TeamGB I'd like to draw ye're attention to this ignorant Australian Sports Pundit by the name of Russell Barwick who finds it ridiculous that Ireland compete independently instead of for Great Britian skip to 4minutes in to hear his rant. The reasons he gives are as follows: 1. Only half of Ireland hates the British 2. The Irish play for the British (and Irish) Lions 3. They also play in the Six Nations 4. It’s like a Hawaiian surfer claiming he is not from the United States.
