Danforth's Lessee v. Thomas

14 U.S. (1 Wheat.) 155

Syllabus

The acts of the Assembly of North Carolina passed between 1783 and 1789 avoids all entries, surveys, and grants of land set apart for the Cherokee Indians, and no title can be thereby acquired to such lands.

The boundaries of the reservation have been altered by successive treaties with the Indians, but it seems that the mere extinguishment of their title did not subject the land to appropriation unless expressly authorized by the legislature. chanrobles.com-red
