Indians, question for group

From: "Wendell Huffman" wwhuffma@clan.lib.nv.us

In the FAQ section there is some statement (based on Williams) that CP dignitaries treated directly with Piute and Shoshone Indians. Does anyone know who actually participated in such meetings and when and where these occurred?

See "Documents of American Indian Diplomacy, Treaties, Agreements, and Conventions, 1775-1979" Vol. l by Vine Deloria, Jr. and Ray DeMallie.
The Kickapoo Treaty of May 18, 1854 says thus: "......and railroad companies, when the lines of their roads necessarily pass through the lands of the Kickapoos, shall have the right of way on the payment of a fair compensation thereof in money."
Chapter 8 of this volume goes into great detail of the railroad treaties.
