Description Produced by Chana Gazit and David Steward. 1980. ISBN: ? Summary Under an agreement determined in 1892, the Seneca Indians rented out the land upon which the town of Salamanca was built. The amount to be paid to the tribe was one dollar per year for 99 years. When the lease expired in 1991, the Indians demanded an increase, or else they would reclaim their property. The irate townspeople disagreed, and thus began a fight that would last five years, with the Indians insisting on their rights.
