Ft. Laramie Treaty of 1868
The second of the Fort Laramie treaties, this treaty was supposed to bring peace to the neighboring Sioux tribes, as well as, with the settling Americans. With this treaty, the United States recognized the Black Hills as part of the Great Sioux Reservation. This allowed only authorized people to enter the Black Hills and any land within the reservation. To this day, the ownership of the Black Hills remains a legal dispute between the United States and the Sioux Nations.
This is the original document signed at Fort Laramie in 1868.
