This chapter focuses on the Treaty of Hopewell signed by the Cherokee chief Corn Tassel with representatives of the U.S. government in November 1785. Provisions of the treaty include U.S. protection for the Cherokee Nation, the right of the Cherokees to send a representative to Congress, the exchange of prisoners, trade regulation, boundaries of the Cherokee lands and promises from the government that no whites would be allowed to settle on their lands. The Treaty of Coyatee, on the other hand, had provisions which forced Cherokees to surrender their lands north of the Little Tennessee River.
