Philadelphia: Indian Rights Association, 1916. Four-panel leaflet folded from a single sheet; two horizontal creases from having been folded for mailing; paper toned, short splits beginning at ends of the creases; accession numbers penned in upper left corner. No. 107, second series.
The Indian Rights Association was an early organization former to defend the rights of Native Americans. Some aspects of its program have come to be seen as paternalistic in retrospect. This leaflet cites examples of legislation that would have infringed upon the rights of native populations, such as the creation of a national park on the Mescalero reservation without compensation to residents.
