Document for March 27th:
A Hopi (Moqui) petition signed by all the Chiefs and headmen of the tribe asking the Federal Government to give them title to their lands instead of individually allotting each tribal member.
Dated March 27 & 28, 1894, this is a page from a petition sent from the Moqui Villages of Arizona to "the Washington Chiefs." The document is unique in that every family in the tribe is represented by their symbol.
