     ARTICLE 1. 
     The above named confederated bands of Indians cede to the 
     United States all their right, title, and interest to all 
     and every part of the country claimed by them included in 
     the following boundaries to wit: Commencing in the middle of 
     the channel of the Columbia River, at the northwestern 
     extremity of the purchase made of the Calapooia and Mollala 
     Bands of Indians; thence running southerly with that 
     boundary to the southwestern point of that purchase, and 
     thence along the summit of the Coast Range of mountains with 
     the western boundaries of the purchase made of the Umpquas 
     and Mollalas of the Umpqua Valley, and of the Scotons, 
     Chastes, and Grave Creeks of the Rogue River Valley, to the 
     southern boundary of Oregon Territory; thence west to the 
     Pacific Ocean, thence northerly along said ocean to the 
     middle of the northern channel of the Columbia River; thence 
     following the middle of said channel to the place of 
     beginning: Provided however, that so much of the country 
     described above as is contained in the following boundaries 
     shall, until otherwise directed by the President of the 
     United States, be set apart as a residence for said Indians, 
     and other such bands or parts of bands as may, by the 
     direction of the President of the United States, be located 

     Such tract for the purpose contemplated shall be held and 
     regarded as an Indian Reservation, to wit: Where the 
     northern boundary of the seventeenth range of townships 
     south of the base line strikes the coast *(1/4 mile north of 
     the Sea Lion Caves); thence east to the western boundary of 
     the eighth range of townships west of the Willamette 
     Meridian, as indicated by John B. Preston's "Diagram of a 
     portion of Oregon Territory"; thence north on that line to 
     the southern boundary of the third range of townships south 
     of the base line *(six miles south of Cape Lookout);  thence 
     west to the Pacific Ocean; and thence southerly along the 
     coast to the place of beginning: Provided, however, That the 
     district west of said eighth range of townships, between the 
     said northern boundary of range seventeen and the fourth 
     standard parallel south, shall, for the term of twenty 
     years, be held and regarded as a part of said Indian 
     reservation, and together with the tract described in this 
     section, as such, be subject to the laws regulating "trade 
     and interciurse with Indian Tribes"  now in force, or 
     hereafter enacted by the Congress of the United States. All 
     of which tract shall be set apart, and, so far as necessary, 
     surveyed and marked out, for the exclusive use of such 
     Indians as are, or may hereafter be, located thereon; nor 
     shall any person other than an Indian be permitted to reside 
     upon the same without the consent and permission of the 
     Superintendent of Indian Affairs and the Agent having charge 
     of said district.  
     The said Bands and Tribes agree to remove to and settle upon 
     the same within one year after the ratification of this 
     convention, without any additional expense to the  
     Government other than is provided by this treaty: and until 
     the expiration of the time specified the said bands shall be 
     permitted to occupy and reside upon the tracts now possessed 
     by them, guaranteeing to all white citizens the right to 
     enter upon and occupy as settlers any lands not included in 
     said reservation, or actually enclosed by said Indians: 
     Provided, however, That, when the public interest or 
     convenience may require, the right of constructing roads, 
     railroads, or other public highways, and navigating the 
     streams or bays in said reservation, is hereby secured to 
     the United States: and provided also, that if any band or 
     bands of Indians residing in and claiming any portion of the 
     country herein described shall not accede to the terms of 
     this treaty, then the bands becoming parties "hereunto agree 
     to receive such part of the several annuities and other 
     payments hereinafter named as a consideration for the entire 
     country described as aforesaid as shall be in the proportion 
     that their aggregate number may have to the whole number of 
     Indians residing in and claiming the entire country 
     aforesaid as consideration and payment in full for the 
     tracts in said claimed by them: And provided also, That 
     where substantial improvements have been made by individuals 
     of bands becoming parties to this treaty, the same shall be 
     valued under direction of the President of the United 
     States, and payment made said individuals therefor, or, in 
     lieu thereof, improvements of an equal extent and value, at 
     their option, shall be made on the tracts assigned to each 

     ARTICLE 2. 
     In consideration of and payment for the country hereby 
     ceded, the United States agree to pay to the Bands and 
     Tribes of Indians claiming territory and residing in said 
     country the several sums of money, to wit: Ten thousand 
     dollars per annum for the first three years, commencing on 
     or before the first day of September, 1857; eight thousand 
     dollars per annum for the term of three years next 
     succeeding the first three; six thousand per annum for the 
     term of three years next succeeding the second three, and 
     three thousand dollars per annum for the term of six years 
     next succeeding the third three.  

     All of which sums of money shall be expended for the use and 
     benefit of the confederated bands, under the direction of 
     the President of the United States, who may from time to 
     time, at his discretion, determine what proportion thereof 
     shall be expended for such objects as, in his judgment, will 
     promote their well being and advance them in civilization; 
     for their mutual improvement and education; for buildings, 
     opening and fencing farms, breaking land, providing teams, 
     stock, agricultural implements, seed, &c.; for clothing, 
     payment of mechanics and farmers, and for arms and 

     ARTICLE 3. 
     The United States agree to pay said Indians the additional 
     sum of thirty thousand dollars, a portion whereof shall be 
     applied to the payment for such articles as may be advanced 
     them at the time of signing this treaty, and in providing, 
     after the ratification thereof, and prior to their removal, 
     such articles as may be deemed by the President essential to 
     their wants; for the payment of employees, and for 
     subsisting the Indians the first year after their removal.  

     ARTICLE 4. 
     In addition to the consideration specified, the United 
     States agree to erect at suitable points on the reservation; 
     two sawmills, two flouring mills, four school houses, and 
     two blacksmith shops, to one of which shall be attached a 
     tin shop; and for two sawyers, two millers, one 
     superintendent of farming operations, three farmers, one 
     physician, four school-teachers, and two blacksmiths, a 
     dwelling house and necessary outbuildings for each; and to 
     purchase and keep in repair, for the time specified for 
     furnishing employees, all necessary mill fixtures, 
     mechanical tools, medicines, books, and stationary for 
     schools, and furniture for employees.  

     The United States further engage to secure and pay for the 
     services and subsistence, for the term of fifteen years, of 
     three farmers, two blacksmiths, two sawyers, two millers; 
     and for the term of twenty years, of one physician, one 
     superintendent of farming operations, and four school 

     The United States also engage to retain the service of one 
     Indian Agent, and to erect at the most central suitable 
     point agency buildings, where such agent shall reside.  

     ARTICLE 5. 
     The half-breeds, legal representatives of the bands and 
     tribes being parties to this treaty, who reside outside of 
     the reservation shall be allowed to draw the share of 
     annuity payments to which they may be entitled, either in 
     cash or goods, at their option; and when residing upon the 
     reservation, they shall be entitled to all the benefit of 
     annuity as well as other payments; but no half-breed shall 
     be permitted to reside upon said reservation without the 
     concurrent consent of the superintendent and agent.  

     ARTICLE 6. 
     The President may, from time to time, at his discretion, 
     cause the whole, or such portion as he may think proper, of 
     the tract that may now or hereafter be set apart as a 
     permanent home for these Indians, to be surveyed into lots 
     and assigned to such Indians of the confederated bands as 
     may wish to enjoy the privilege and located thereon 
     permanently; to a single person over twenty one years of 
     age, forty acres; to a family of two persons, sixty acres; 
     to a family of three and not exceeding five persons, eighty 
     acres; to a family of six persons and not exceeding ten, one 
     hundred and twenty acres; and to each family over ten in 
     number, twenty acres for each additional three members. And 
     the President may provide such rules and regulations as will 
     secure to the family, in case of the death of the head 
     thereof, the possession and enjoyment of such permanent home 
     and improvements thereon; and he may at any time, at his 
     discretion, after such person or family has made location on 
     the land assigned as a permanent home, issue a patent to 
     such person or family for such assigned land, conditioned 
     that the tract shall not be aliened or leased for a term 
     longer than two years, and shall be exempt from levy, sale, 
     or forfeiture, which condition shall continue in force until 
     a State constitution, embracing such lands within it's 
     limits, shall have been formed, and the legislature of the 
     State shall remove the restriction: Provided, however, That 
     no State shall remove the restriction herein provided for 
     without the consent of Congress: And provided also, that if 
     any person or family shall at any time neglect or refuse to 
     occupy or till a portion of the land assigned, and on which 
     they have located, or shall roam from place to place, 
     indicating a desire to abandon said home, the President may, 
     if the patent shall have been issued, revoke the same, and 
     if not issued, cancel the assignment; and may also withhold 
     from such person or family their portion of the annuities or 
     other money due them, until they shall have returned to such 
     permanent home and resumed the pursuits of industry; and in 
     default of their return, the treact may be declared 
     abandoned, and thereafter assigned to some other person or 
     family of Indians living on said reservation.  

     ARTICLE 7. 
     The annuities of the Indians shall not be taken to pay the 
     debts of individuals.  

     ARTICLE 8. 
     The confederated bands acknowledge their dependence on the 
     Government of the United States, and promise to be friendly 
     with all of the citizens thereof, and pledge themselves to 
     commit no depredations on the property of said citizens; and 
     should any one or more of the Indians violate this pledge, 
     and the fact be satisfactorily proven before the Agent, the 
     property taken shall be returned; or in default thereof, or 
     if injured or destroyed, compensation may be made by the 
     Government out of their annuities; nor will they make war on 
     any other tribes of Indians except in self-defense, but 
     submit all matters of difference between them and other 
     Indians to the Government of the United States, or it's 
     agent for decision, and abide thereby; and if any of the 
     said Indians commit depredations on other Indians, the same 
     rule shall prevail as that prescribed in the case of 
     depredations against citizens.  

     ARTICLE 9. 
     For the purpose of establishing uniformity of laws, rules, 
     and regulations among the various bands of Indians being 
     parties to this treaty, and to give greater security to 
     person and property, it is hereby agreed that the Congress 
     of the United States, with the approval of the President, 
     shall have power to enact laws for the government of said 

     ARTICLE 10. 
     In order to prevent the evils of intemperance among said 
     Indians, it is hereby provided that if any one of them shall 
     drink liquor to excess, or procure it for others to drink, 
     his or her proportion of the annuities may be withheld from 
     him or her for such time as the President may determine.  

     ARTICLE 11. 
     The United States agree to expend a sum of money, not 
     exceeding ten thousand dollars, in opening and constructing 
     wagon roads between the different settlements on said 
     reservation, and from the saw and flouring mills herein 
     provided for to said settlements; and in the event of a 
     failure to effect secure landings for vessels in the 
     transportation of annuity goods within said reservation, the 
     additional sum, not exceeding ten thousand dollars, shall be 
     expended by the United States in opening and constructing a 
     wagon road from some point at or near the mouth of the Ne-
     aches-na or Salmon River to the settlements in the 
     Willamette valley, and one wagon road from some navigable 
     point on Yah-quo-nah or Alcea River to the valley of the 

     ARTICLE 12. 
     The United States engage to establish and maintain a 
     military post on said reservation whensoever the peace and 
     safety of the Indians residing thereon shall render the same 

     ARTICLE 13. 
     This treaty shall be obligatory on the contracting parties 
     as soon as the same shall be ratified by the President, and 
     Senate of the United States.  

     In testimony whereof, the said Joel Palmer, on the part of 
     the United States, and the undersigned chiefs, headmen, and 
     delegates of the said confederated bands, have hereunto set 
     their hands and seals this eleventh day of August, eighteen-
     hundred and fifty-five.
