Map 8. Principal Indian Cessions. The area comprised in the state of Wisconsin
was acquired from various Indian tribes by eleven treaties of cession. The first five
were negotiated while Wisconsin was part of Michigan Territory, and covered all
the land south and east of the Fox and Wisconsin rivers. The treaties were executed
at 1) Prairie du Chien, 2) Prairie du Chien, 3) Washington, D.C., 4) Fort Arm-
strong, Rock Island, Illinois and 5) Chicago, Illinois. The next five were executed
while Wisconsin was a territory, at 6) Cedar Point, on the Fox River below Apple-
ton, 7) St. Peter's, at the confluence of the St. Peter's and Mississippi rivers, 8)
Washington, D.C., 9) Washington, D.C., and 10) La Pointe of Lake Superior. By
the time Wisconsin had become a state, Indian title was extinguished to all land
except what the Menominee retained in the east-central part of the state. The cession
of this soon followed, at Lake Pow-aw-hay-Kou-nay (Lake Poygan). Drawn from
