Indian Tribes Associated With This Agency

Twelve bands of Indians referred to collectively as the To-To-Tin Indians.

History

The Port Orford Agency was established by 1854 at Port Orford, Oregon. At its creation, it was reponsible for the Indians south of Coos Bay and west of the Coast Mountain Range consisting of twelve bands of a group referred to as the To-To-Tin Indians[1].

The agency was not in existence long, as most of the Indians of Oregon were concentrated to reservations following the Rogue River War of the late 1850s[2].

Records

Any existing records of the Port Orford Agency would likely be included in the correspondence of the Oregon Superintendency and successor agencies in Oregon formed after 1856.
