Conference with the Indians at Shamokin or Augusta meeting minutes, 1763
July 17, 1763
Minutes from a meeting between Telonemat, a representative of the Six Nations Wawpaway tribe and "a Muncey Chief," and Colonel James Burd, a British military leader in the French and Indian War. The negotiations recorded here took place against the backdrop of escalating violence in the wake of the French and Indian War, and concerned a series of retaliatory attacks between Native Americans and European settlers. It was common for these negotiations to involve both interpreters and individuals who transcribed the proceedings.
