Abstract:
Awekualawaachish, a Crow leader, negotiated the treaties of 1851 and 1868 with the U.S. Government. The purpose of this study was to investigate this leader's family background, war deeds, and political record. A review of documents and oral history of the Crow people revealed that this Crow Chief loved his people and negotiated to reserve land and a decent livelihood for future generations. It was evident that he had a role in shaping Crow political and social history and these are summarized. The study revealed that in spite of his valiant attempts to negotiate a fair deal for the Crow people government schemes such as Treaties, Agreements, Executive Orders, Laws, and Court Decisions have undermined what was originally negotiated. His negotiations and subsequent legislation are summarized.
