The Treaty of Easton was a colonial agreement in North America signed in October 1758 in Easton, Pennsylvaniamarker between the Britishmarker colonial government of the Province of Pennsylvania and the Native American tribes in the Ohio Country, including the Shawnee, Iroquois, and Lenape. Conrad Weiser served as an interpreter and arbitrator. Signed during the French and Indian War, the agreement specified that the Native Americans would not fight on the side of the Frenchmarker against the British, provided that the British in Pennsylvania did not establish any settlements west of the Allegheny Mountains after the conclusion of the war. This clause of the treaty was part of the motivation for the Crown's subsequent Proclamation of 1763.

In addition, all remaining First Nations claims to land ownership within the Province of New Jersey were ceded for the sum of $1000 Spanish dollars, which they received immediately.
