You have to understand how treaties were presented to the Indians. The Commissioners would come to talk, Interpreters would then interpret what is being said, then a time would be used by the Tribes to go back and discuss, negotiations would take place, a wampum belt would be finished, a finalized treaty presented, the wampum belt would be presented, a peace medal would be presented and then the Signatories would sign.
The Treaty is written as a Linguistic Treaty to those who are speaking the Cherokee Trade Language.
Look at the wording concerning the Cherokee and the other Indians
When using logic and a discerning skill for interpretation, it is more than obvious that the persons the treaty is being written to is all of the tribes who speak the "Cherokee Trade Language" and not all of the Cherokees present, because it is illogical to call all of the Creek, Choctaw, Natchez, Seminole, Delaware, Shawnee, and dozens of other smaller tribes "Cherokee" because they are definitely not "Cherokee."
