On October 2, 1818, the Potawatomi Indians agreed to relinquish much of their land in Indiana. In exchange, the United States government agreed to pay the Potawatomi Indians a yearly annuity consisting of 2,500 dollars. This agreement became known as the Treaty with the Potawatomi.

The Treaty with the Potawatomi, along with several other treaties between Indian tribes and the United States government during the first decades of the nineteenth century, marked the slow but gradual removal of native people to land west of the Mississippi River. The removal of the Indians opened much of what was once known as the Northwest Territory to settlement.
