1701 Nanfan Treaty

A map of the land granted by the Iroquois Confederacy to the British that was designated for use in hunting beaver for the fur trade. This treaty, the Nanfan Treaty of 1701, was made between the Iroquois and the governor of New York who was acting on behalf of the English government. New France treatied with their allies, the Algonquian, for title to the same area, and didn't recognize the Nanfan treaty.
