Wow, I just read both of the treaties. It seemed like the 1820 listing was abbreviated. It did include fishing rights in perpetuity to the Falls of the St Mary’s. However the Treaty of 1836 was quite explicit. No fishing rights of any kind were mentioned, and it was quite explicit in stating the tribes were to move to a permanent reservation in Missouri. I wonder if there were subsequent agreements later. The other possibility is Judge Fox (?), considered the treaty a “living document”, which allowed him to interpret the treaty in any manner he felt justified.
Rush Limbaugh was correct when he deemed a certain train of thought a “mental disorder”.
