Abstract:

The American Indian File is an artificially assembled collection which includes miscellaneous pieces and five smaller groups of papers concerning Indians in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The documents are primarily concerned with the transfer of land from Indians to whites and include deeds, indentures, treaties, proclamations and mortgages. Nearly all the papers are dated from 1634 to 1815, with a very few pieces from the late 19th and the 20th centuries. Also included is information on military and political affairs, negotiations and Indian ethnology, primarily between 1780 to 1850. Tribes belonging to the Iroquoian language family, including the Cherokees and Senecas, are most fully represented, but tribes in the Algonquian family, especially in the Great Lakes region are also represented (Ottawa and Saginaw Chippewa).

Other items include the manuscripts of Harmen M. van de Bogaert's "Memorial of the principal events that happened during a Journey to the Maquas and Sinnikins Indians" (1634-1635, HM 819) and John Ridge's "The Cherokee War Path" (HM 1730), and Franz Hölzlhuber's drawings of Indian clothing in "Cöstum-Bilder waffen und Geräthschaften einiger Indianestaine im Nordwesten America" (1856-1860, HM 9892).
