Reason- 1763, at the end of the French and Indiana War, us (the British) issued a proclamation,mainly intended to conciliate the Indians by checking the trespass of settlers on their lands. In the centuries since the proclamation, it has become one of the cornerstones of Native Americans law in the U.S and Canada

why taxing- Although the proclamation was shown as a temporary measure, its economic benefits for us (Britain) caused ministers to keep it until eve of revolution. A desire for good farmland caused many colonist to defy the proclamation; others simply resented the royal limitation on trade and migration.

date of act- 1763
