In February of 1837, 923.4 acres of Mohawk land was illegally patented to John Culbertson, the grandson of Mohawk Captain John Deserontyon. This was not in compliance with the Simcoe Deed, also known as Treaty 3 1/2. In 1995, Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte filed for the return of the Culbertson Tract, as well as compensation for loss of use from 1837 to the present day. Settlement negotiations were accepted in 2003. On October 16, 2021, a ratification vote was held on the partial settlement of the Culbertson Tract. Membership voted in favour of restoring 299.43 acres of land to the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, meaning this is now reserve land. This partial settlement does not impact MBQ’s ability to seek a settlement for the remainder of the Culbertson Tract at any time in the future.
