The treaty at Dancing Rabbit Creek resulted in promises to the Choctaw about reservation lands. Now they want "adjustments" and this Gov't imprint of 28pp deals with the matter of granting them land. A "tag-along" inclusion in this discussion is the question of Mississippi Indian Agents wanting to know if they get paid from the time they leave home or when they arrive on the job.
