National Museum of the American Indian’s Historic Unveiling of Gold Rush Era Treaty Held Secret by U.S. Senate Leading to Ethnic Cleansing of American Indian Nations in California

22 Sep

WASHINGTON — Unratified California Treaty K, also known as the Treaty of Temecula, will go on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian on Sept. 22. This treaty is part of the exhibition “Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations,” which opened on Sept. 21, 2014 and will stay open through Spring 2020. The full text of the treaty is available on the Nation to Nation project website.

The Treaty of Temecula is but one of 18 unratified treaties with California tribes that were submitted to the U.S. Senate on June 1, 1852 by President Millard Fillmore. Unbeknownst to the tribal signatories, the Senate rejected the treaties and ordered them to be held in secrecy for over fifty years.
