Indian Convention

Indian Convention
We learn with pleasure, that a convention of delegates from the Indian tribes in the states of New-York, Michigan, and some of the Canadian tribes, is to be held at Green-Bay, in the Michigan territory, on the first of December next, for the purpose of adopting means and measures for the government of these unfortunate people. A president has already been appointed, and some of the representatives chosen. The Rev. Eleazar Williams, minister at Green-Bay, (a descendant of the Rev. John Williams, first minister of Deerfield, in this county,) is to preach the election sermon. We understand that it will be one of the first objects of the convention to draft a system of education for the Indian youth, in the principles of the English language and in practical husbandry. -- Greenfield Gazette
