Treaty of La Pointe - 1842 Treaty of La Pointe

1842 Treaty of La Pointe

The first treaty of La Pointe was signed Robert Stuart for the United States and representatives of the Ojibwe of Lake Superior and the Mississippi on October 4, 1842 and proclaimed on March 23, 1843, encoded into the laws of the United States as 7 Stat. 591. This treaty ceded lands now parts of Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula Michigan. The signatory tribes retain hunting, fishing and gathering rights on for this region.

However, the news of the signing of the Webster-Ashburton Treaty on August 9, 1842, did not reach the diplomatic corps of either party, officially ending the boundary dispute between Great Britain and the United States, on what now is the Arrowhead Region of Minnesota. Consequently the Grand Portage Band was not invited to join the signing of this treaty. In 1844, the United States and Grand Portage Band signed the Isle Royale Agreement as an adhesion to this treaty.
