History

The Pueblo and Jicarilla Agency was a continuation of the Pueblo Agency, renamed in 1891 when the Jicarilla Apache Indians were transferred to that agency. This agency was abolished in 1901 when a new Jicarilla Agency was established. Jurisdiction over the Pueblo Indians was divided  between the Albuquerque and Santa Fe Indian Schools.[1]

Records

Some of the administrative records of the Pueblo and Jicarilla Agency are in the Rocky Mountain Regional Archives of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Denver.

Reports of Inspection of the Field Jurisdictions of the Office of Indian Affairs, 1873-1900 have been microfilmed by the National Archives as part of Microcopy Number M1070. The reports for Pueblo and Jicarilla Agency, 1882-1900, are on roll 41 of that Microcopy set[2]. Copies are available at the National Archives, their Regional Archives, and at the Family History Library and its family history centers (their microfilm roll number 1617714).

The 1900 federal census included population schedules for the Zuni Indians in New Mexico. The Indians residing on this reservation in 1900 were under the jurisdiction of the Pueblo and Jicarilla Agency and are listed on Indian Population Schedules as District 177, Zuni Reservation of the Pueblo and Jicarilla Apache Reservation, in Valencia County, New Mexico.
