The History of the Butterfly, Part 130: A New Treaty

The visit that the Sauk and Fox Indians made to Washington resulted in a new land cessation treaty.

The tan double triangle area was what was ceded.  Poweshiek’s village was near Iowa City at the time–Poweshiek lived in that area for about 3-4 years.

This drawing of part of Johnson County shows where the treaty boundaries were.

This shows where Poweshiek’s village was.
