Williams Treaties, 1923 - Mississauga Indians

Document Summary:
Mississauga 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.
