but the State government representing the people, ceased to regard them as such (see 1st Journal of Congress, p. 378). “In nearly all of the states where the Indians still held or occupied lands, acts were passed by the legislatures declaring the Indians to be wards and incompetent of making contracts upon equal terms with the whites and also incapable of managing their own private affairs. Also some of the states asserted the right to dispose of such wardship lands “not actually subdued and improved’ to the whites, who were left to conciliate the Indians as best they might. “Treaties continued to be made by the Government with the Indians until the act of March 3, 1871 (16 Stat. L., 566), by which Congress declared: “No Indian nation or tribe within the territory of the United States shall be acknowledged or recognized as an independent nation . . . with whom the United States may contract by treaty; and no Indian treaty made with any Indian tribe or nation shall be hereby invalidated or impaired.’ “This act marked the end of the period in which the Indians had been treated with as distinct independent nations and by the solemnities of treaties. Thereafter agreements were made with them.” "
