TitleEarly Years of the Delaware Indian Experience in Kansas Territory, 1830-1845, The
AbstractIn 1829 the United States formed a treaty with the Delaware Indian Nation offering them tracts of land in Kansas Territory to replace their Missouri lands. This article details the history of the Delaware at this time period of the nineteenth century. The difficulty for the tribe to adjust is pointed out and their interaction with the white man and other Indian tribes is explained. Includes maps and extensive footnotes.
NotesAccording to the article, "the Delaware reservation was located on the eastern border of Kansas along the Missouri and Kansas rivers in present-day Wyandotte County. The line extended westward to Fort Leavenworth, a total of 924,160 acres. An outlet was added that pushed Delaware land to over 2.8 million acres. It was ten miles wide and extended from the northwest corner of the Delaware reservation to the bison grounds of the Plains, a distance of over 200 miles."
