In nine treaties negotiated by Abel C. Pepper, Indian agent, on the banks of the Tippecanoe River north of Rochester in 1836, the Potawatomies ceded their land for 50 cents to $1 an acre and agreed to move west in two years. These treaties were signed by many different Indians with an X mark, including Chief Kewanna, Aubbeenaubbee and his son Pau-koo-shuck.

In 1836 the Treaty of Yellow River was negotiated with the Pottawatomie, with the goal of purchasing all their remaining lands in Indiana. The tribe was offered $1 per acre for their land and a 320-acre (1.3 km2) parcel of land for each member of the tribe in Kansas, in addition to other guarantees. The treaty was overwhelming approved and most of the tribe moved to Kansas, where they remained until modern times.

The lands held by this tribe in the State of Indiana were ceded to the United States by the treaty of Washington, D. C., Feb. 11, 1837, and the Indians agreed to remove to a reservation in Kansas within three years. The lands assigned to them were situated between the Shawnee reservation and that of the New York Indians, just west of the Miami reserve.

The village near Twin Lakes, led by Chief Menominee, refused to take part in the negotiations and did not recognize the treaty's authority over his band. The whole tribe was required to vacate their land by 1838, but Menominee refused. In September 1838, Governor David Wallace authorized General John Tipton to remove the tribe in what became known as the Potawatomi Trail of Death. The group of 859 Pottawatomie were force marched to Kansas, killing at least 40.
