This brief article published n the New York Times describes the treaty signed by the Comanche and Kiowa tribes at Medicine Lodge Creek, Barber County, Kansas, in 1867. According to the terms of the treaty, these tribes would relocate to Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma) and in return they would receive provisions and annual annuity payments of $2500. The article also mentions that the treaties with other tribes, including the Cheyenne, Apache, and Arapaho, will be concluded shortly.

This article provides a contemporary perspective on the treaty and concisely summarizes the terms of the agreement. It also gives hints about white attitudes, as the article refers to the Cheyenne as "hostile." This source would work well alongside other newspaper articles on the treaty, including those published in the St. Louis Daily Missouri Democrat.
