Indian Tribes Associated With This Agency
Agencies and sub-agencies were created as administrative offices of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and its predecessors. Their purpose was (and is) to manage Indian affairs with the tribes, to enforce policies, and to assist in maintaining the peace. The names and location of these agencies may have changed, but their purpose remained basically the same. Many of the records of genealogical value (for the tribe and tribal members) were created by and maintained by the agencies.
Many of the historical records for this agency, prior to 1963, are to be found in the National Archives Southwest Region (Ft. Worth), and in the Oklahoma Historical Society in Oklahoma City, under the name Cheyenne and Arapaho Agency.
