Product Description
Manhattan gets all of the glory for Indian land sales, but the Indians were in the habit of selling or trading land with the settlers all throughout the New World. One of the lands that they struggled to sell was Staten Island. They referred to this piece of land as Aquehonga Manacknong, which means “the place of bad woods.” Judging by the name, Staten Island was not very important to this group of Indians. For a variety of reasons, the land deed of Staten Island, 1657 was not to be the last. It was later replaced by the 1670 land deed made between the Native Americans and the British.

Have your students evaluate the deed, the wording, and the signatures. Then determine if this land deed was fair or not. Perfect for studying early American history or Native American culture.
