Records

Most of the records for the earlier Grand Ronde and Siletz Agencies appear to have been carried down as separate records when its duties were carried out by the Salem School. When the Grand Ronde-Siletz Agency was established, again the records appear to have gone into the holdings of the new agency and are among the records of that consolidated agency now housed in the Pacific Alaska Regional Archives of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Seattle[2]. Among these records are:

  • Census records, 1925-1950
  • School census cards, 1932-1945
  • Land enrollment records, 1942-1954
