Description

Resolve on the report of Alexander Campbell, John Allan, and George Stillman of the committee to "negotiate and settle any misunderstanding, dispute, or difference ... between Massachusetts and the Passamaquoddy and other tribes.

This is a supplemental document to the 1794 treaty which was part of Maine’s attempt to learn about Passamaquoddy lands and rights in eastern Maine. For example, the treaty retained the Passamaquoddy rights to two reservations, one called IndianTownship and the other Pleasant Point. In contrast to the Penobscots, who signed an 1820 treaty with Maine in which tribal leaders recognized the new state, government bureaucracy extended slowly to the Passamaquoddy.

In 1821,Maine appointed an Indian agent to each of the Penobscot and Passamaquoddy tribes whose business transactions in community affairs challenged tribal decisions. Nineteenth century Wabanaki petitions to Maine reveal that a political discourse emerged between tribal leaders and state officials.
