Indian Tribes Associated With This Agency

Yavapai, Tonto Apache

History

The Yavapai and Tonto Apache lived in the Verde Valley in central Arizona where a reservation was established for them in 1871, administered by the Rio Verde Agency. In 1875, they were forcibly removed from that area to the San Carlos Reservation in southern Arizona. Some of them returned to the area in about 1900 and an agency was established there called the Camp Verde Agency.

In 1937, the Camp Verde Agency was merged with the Truxton Canyon Agency[1].

Records

The 1900 federal census included population schedules for the Havasupai Indian Reservation. The census includes the non-Indian employees of the Havasupai Agency, as well as many pages of Indian Population Schedules for the native population of the Reservation. They are recorded as District 78, Havasupai Indian Reservation, in Coconino County, Arizona.

Microfilm copies of ...Narrative and Statistical Reports... for the Camp Verde Agency, 1908-1927, are included in National Archives Microcopy M1011, Roll 7[2], available in the National Archives system and in the collections of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City (their microfilm number 1724225).

Annual Indian Census Rolls were taken at this agency for 1915 thru 1927. These rolls have been microfilmed by the National Archives as part of their Microcopy Number M595, roll 15[3]. Copies of these records are also available at the National Archives, their Regional Archives, and at the Family History Library and its family history centers (their microfilm number 573861). These census rolls are also available online at Ancestry.com's subscription web site.
