Leaders from eight groups of Native Americans met in 1815 with William Henry Harrison, Duncan McArthur, and John Graham, who were representatives of the United States government.

Following the War of 1812, the Wyandot Indians, the Delaware Indians, the Shawnee Indians, the Seneca Indians, the Ottawa Indians, the Chippewa Indians, the Potawatomie Indians, and the Miami Indians sought to reestablish peaceful relations with the United States. Not all of these people had sided  officially with the British in the War of 1812.  However, many Native Americans from these groups chose to wage war in spite of their respective nation's official position.

On September 8, 1815, the parties signed a treaty ending hostilities and formally bringing this part of the War of 1812 to a close.
