13 Medicine Creek Treaty Article 5. The right of taking fish at usual and accustomed grounds and stations is further secured to said Indians in common with all citizens of the Territory. Features of the policy outlined by Gov. Stevens: 1 To concentrate the Indians upon a few reservations, and encourage then to cultivate the soil and adopt settled and civilized habits. 2 To pay for their lands not in money, but in annuities of blankets, clothing and useful articles during a long term of years. 3 To furnish them with schools, teachers, farmers and implements, blacksmiths, and carpenter, with shops of those trades. 4 To prohibit wars and disputes among them. 5 To abolish slavery. 6 To stop as far as possible the use of liquor. 7 As the change from savage to civilized habits must necessarily be gradual, they were to retain the right of fishing at their accustomed fishing places, and of hunting, gathering berries and roots and pasturing stock on unoccupied land as long as it remained vacant.
