Washington Monument: George Washington: President (1091 words)
Washington left on April the 16th traveling to New York City, the temporary capital of the new Republic.
Washington, however, demurred, feeling that it was best to live in "peace and amity with all the inhabitants of the earth." George Washington's problems with Spain, France and the pirates of North Africa were left to his successor.
Washington suppressed the actions of Genet by informing him that the new nation was a member of the family of Nations.
Indian Hunting and Fishing Rights - Testimony by Jim Buck (2930 words)
Washington state's treaties were negotiated by Territorial Governor Isaac Stevens in 1854 at the direction of the President of the United States and ratified by the senate as required by Article 2, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution.
Since Washington State does not have the authority to regulate the commerce, specifically hunting regulations, with the Indian tribes, questions such as the ones I've posed have always been decided by the courts.
The tribes, parties to this treaty, raise 1000 bushels of potatoes, own 236 canoes and 256 horses and hence the provisions as to pasturing of their horses on unclaimed land and to prevent the propagation of their animals to the deterioration of the American horse [this last word is not clear in the written record].
