Paypom Treaty

The Paypom Document is an original set of notes made for Chief Powasson at the signing of the 1873 treaty between the Ojibway Indians and the government of Canada at North West Angle on Lake of the Woods.

The notes differ in many respects from the printed version of the treaty which was delivered to the signatories by government officials sometime later. Recent treaty research indicates that the printed version may have been written a year before the 1873 North West Angle negotiations.
