United States and the British government
[Reproduced 1991 (originally created 1794)]
The Jay Treaty was signed the British government and the United States. It affected Aboriginals in Canada, particularly the Six Nations.
To prevent war over Aboriginal land rights and to create a 'buffer' state between settlers and Aboriginals, Britain negotiated a peace agreement. The Jay Treaty outlines the British agreement to remove all Crown officials from their posts south of the Great Lakes by June 1796. In return, Aboriginals could freely cross the Canada-U.S. border.
