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., 03/27/1894 - 04/10/1894.
Item From: Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, (1849-09/17/1947).
Power of the Pen. Note the different ways the Hopi (Moqui) Chiefs choose to make their marks and further instill the legitimacy of their request. This petition was significant because it called for more government transparency in its dealings with the tribe, and sought more autonomy in their own affairs.
