Excerpt from Report of the Commission: Appointed to Treat With the Sioux Indians for the Relinquishment of the Black Hills

Gentlemen: You have been appointed by the honorable Secretary of the Interior under the direction of the President, as members of the commission to negotiate with the Sioux Indians relative to the procurement Of a cession by them of such portion of that coun try known as the Black Hills, between the North and South Forks of the Big Cheyenne, as the President may determine to be desirable for the Government to purchase for mining purposes, and a relinquishment of their rights to that portion of Wyoming known as the Big Horn Mountains and lying west Of a line running from the point where the Niobrara River crosses the east line Of Wyoming to the Tongue River, said line to keep distant on the east not less than fifty miles from each of the forts formerly known as Fetterman, Reno, and Kear ney, and also of the necessary right of way through their country to reach the country ceded.

By reference to the treaty Of 1868, made with these Indians, sections 2 and 16, copy Of which is herewith inclosed, you will be informed as to the nature and extent Of the respect ive claims Of the Sioux to these tracts of country. That portion Of the Black Hills country which lies within the boundaries Of Dakota is, without dispute, a part Of their permanent reservation. The country mentioned in Wyoming, as described in the sixteenth se etion of the treaty above referred to, is a portion of unceded territory.' TO this the Indians have no claim except for hunting purposes and the exclusion Of other people.
