Refer to my last post - this one is only missing the smiley face.
Did they stay in NY or not?
How about that Sullivan question?
If you are asking if the Cayugas stayed in NY after the Sullivan campaign, the answer is yes.
You are correct. There were Cayuga here prior to and following the Sullivan expedition.
Just sticking with the facts.
1775 to 1783 _ American Revolution. The Cayuga sided with the British
1784 _ Grand River Reserve, Brantford, Ontario, Canada was established for the Iroquois tribes as appreciation by Great Britain to their allies. 1,843 Iroquois were settled there by 1785, including 381 Cayuga. In 2001 the population was 21,474.
1789 _ ALL Cayuga territory was sold to NYS by a dissident faction of Cayuga near Buffalo, which extinguished aboriginal title. Of the CEEDED territory, 64,014 acres of the state land was a retrocession, NOT a set aside, to the Cayuga tribe for their use.
1790 _ The State made an identical treaty with a dissident faction of stragglers remaining at Cayuga Lake.
1790 _ TIA passed mandating federal approval of tribal transactions
1792 _ 1790 TIA expired
1793 _ TIA passed with surrounded by settlements exception excluding states. Exception maintained in all successive Trade and Intercourse Acts through 1834 excluding areas surrounded by settlements and dealt with interstate sales, not intrastate sales. In 1834 the exception was removed. 25 USC 177 was a rewrite of the 1834 version.
1794 _ Treaty of Canandaigua recognized the 1789 Cayuga treaty with New York State.
1795 _ The Cayuga dissident faction sold most of their use rights to the state lands.
1799 _ Sullivan Expedition in retaliation of Iroquois terrorist activities and the Wyoming and Cherry Valley Massacres. Two Cayuga members were killed. Yes, the few that had separated from the tribe remained.
1807 _ The Cayuga dissident faction sold the remaining use rights to the state lands.
1812 _ The Cayuga sided with the British again in the War of 1812.
1926 _ The 1926 International Tribunal included all factions of the Cayuga, ruled the 1789, 1790, 1795 and 1807 treaties to be all one contract and ordered the U.S. to pay the real Cayuga tribe in Canada $100,000, which Congress approved and paid.
