allotment system

That system or practice under which lands are by treaty allotted to Indian tribes for use as hunting grounds and other purposes. The word allotted is not to be construed or understood in the sense of being parcelled out to the Indians as a favor, but rather in the sense of acknowledging their right to have the lands thus set out to them.
