Treaties, 1923 - Chippewa Indians
Chippewa nations in Ontario give up land rights to the federal
government in exchange for $25 each, and forthcoming funds of
more than $230,000. Most of the land covered by this treaty is
meant to rectify blank treaties, non-existent treaties
purportedly signed between the British and the Aboriginals, or
other unfair dealings during the 1700s and 1800s.
However, the Aboriginals also surrender their hunting, fishing
and trapping rights on all of the land covered by the treaty.
