Under the CampCharlotteTreaty in October 1774, the Shawnee agreed to allow settlement by pioneer families in the Can-tuc-kee (Kentucky) lands south of the Ohio River, and to allow boats to navigate the Ohio River unmolested.
Two treaties negotiated in 1785 defied the native American concept of communal land use, and attempted to confine the Ottawa, Delaware, Chippewa, Wyandot and Shawnee tribes to the northern portion of the Ohio territory, while opening the remaining two-thirds of the area to settlement.
A new treaty was to be signed at Greenville, and each of the affected tribes was to be represented by the principal chief who had the authority to speak for his people.
