The Fort Laramie Treaty
The Fort Laramie Treaty (also known as the Sioux Treaty of 1868) set aside the Great Sioux Reservation for the exclusive use of only the Sioux People. A reservation is a tract of public land set aside for a special purpose. A reservation for the Native Americans is land they can use to hunt on, build shelter, and cook food. The purpose of the Fort Laramie Treaty was to bring peace between the northers and the Sioux tribe.
