Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 79
This Council was convened by John Ross, at Tah-le-quah, in the Cherokee Nation, in the month of June, 1843, and continued in session four weeks. Delegates from seventeen tribes were present, and the whole assemblage numbered some ten thousand Indians; during the session, each of the chiefs and warriors of the several delegations, delivered a "talk;" but want of space compels us to confine ourselves to the explanation of the wampum belt, and the speech of Mr. Ross. . . . [Pp. 29-33; entry includes the speech from Mr. Ross to the International Indian Council and a detailed description of the wampum ceremony.]
