Ratified Treaties between the Cherokee and United States (1778-1850)

The following list of treaties is composed of treaties which have names (as referenced in other treaties, letters, etc).

  • 1785 – Treaty of Hopewell
  • 1791 – Treaty of Holston
  • 1817 – Treaty of 1817
  • 1819 – Treaty of 1819
  • 1835 – Treaty of New Echota

A full list of treaties is available on the Kappler Project (you can sort them by tribe or year). Kappler lists 17 ratified treaties made with the Cherokee—3 of which are with the Western Cherokee—and 1 ratified treaty between 1789 and 1850. I will update this list as I come across other references.

On a side note: If you look at the number of ratified treaties between the Federal Government and all tribes, you can see this huge increase in the 1830s:

  • 1770-79: 1treaties
  • 1780-89: 6
  • 1790-99: 10
  • 1800-09: 31
  • 1810-19: 50
  • 1820-29: 50
  • 1830-39: 85
  • 1840-49: 18
  • 1850: 1
