The Treaty of Maumee was signed on February 18, 1833. In this treaty, some representatives of the Ottawa living in Ohio gave up their claims to all of their lands located in the state. The United States government agreed to pay the Ottawas $29,440 for their land.

The government did permit several exceptions, allowing certain tribal leaders and whites who had been adopted into the tribe to keep small parcels of land.
