||Speech to Assembled Iroquois Chiefs, April 30, 1798 [manuscript]

Wabanip is identified on this document simply as a principal chief
of the Mohawks, under Joseph Brant (1743?-1807). Nothing more has
been found about him. For more on Brant, see AJ-152 and AJ-153.
This speech was given by Wabanip to the assembled eastern Ojibway
chiefs to assure them of his sincerity in negotiations with the
British. At their request a record was made on paper which all parties
signed. This was collected by Lyman Copeland Draper, probably between
1877 and 1880, and is now in volume 12F (Brant Papers), pages 33-41,
of the Draper Manuscripts.
