Chief Tarhe petition
Description: This letter written from Chief Tarhe and eight other chiefs of the Wyandot Tribe to Governor Samuel Huntington of Ohio protests the surveying of land by white settlers in the area reserved to the American Indian residents by the Treaty of Greenville. Through an interpreter, the letter's signatories remind the Governor that it is his responsibility to make sure Ohio citizens adhere to the treaty, and ask that he send proclamations to them and to Scioto to remind the settlers that they are not to survey or settle in the areas granted to the area's tribes. The letter was written at Upper Sandusky and is dated May 8, 1810. View on Ohio Memory.
