U.S. Data Sourcebook, Volume 11 Appendices, Bureau of Indian Affairs List of American Indian reservation, Appendix E, indian reservation, Omnigraphics, Inc., 1991. The following reservation names in bold are current federally-recognized reservations:

  • Burns Paiute Reservation
  • Celilo Village
  • Confederated Tribe of Coos, Lower Umpqua & Siuslaw Indians
  • Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Reservation:

  • Warm Springs Reservation: Federal, under the jurisdiction of Warm Springs Agency, Tribes: Warm Springs, Northern Paiute, and Wasco

Agencies of the Bureau of Indian Affairs

Agencies were created as an administrative division of the federal government 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 were created by these offices.

Reference

Indian Schools

The Office of Indian Affairs (now the Bureau of Indian Affairs) established a network of schools throughout the United States, beginning with Carlisle Indian School, established in 1879. Some of these schools were day schools, usually focusing on Indian children of a single tribe or reservation. Some were boarding schools which served Indian children from a number of tribes and reservations.

In addition, other groups such as various church denominations established schools specifically focusing on American Indian children. (read more...)

Family History Library

The Family History Library has histories of the various tribes that have lived in Oregon. The library also has microfilm copies of the Bureau of Indian Affairs' records of births, marriages, deaths, censuses, schools, land allotments, and heirships. In general, these are for 1877 to 1952 and include records of the Chemawa Indian School, Grand Ronde-Siletz and Klamath agencies and the Portland Area Office. The original documents are at the National Archives—Pacific Alaska Region (Seattle) and their internet site.

  • Of special value are the Family Index Cards, 1938-1950 from the Portland Office of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (Family History Library films 1028470 item 4 to 1028471) and Family History and Medical Data, 1904-1937 from the Klamath Agency (Family History Library films 1028454 item 2 to 1028455).
  • A useful guide is Charles E. McChesney, Rolls of Certain Indian Tribes in Oregon and Washington (Fairfield, Washington: Ye Galleon Press, l969; Family History Library book 970.1 R659).

Other records are also listed in the Subject Search of the Family History Library Catalog under the name of the tribe or in the Place Search of the catalog under the name of the state and various subjects, such as PROBATE RECORDS and LAND AND PROPERTY.

  • Jesuits Mission 1853-1960, 34 films, 1st film 1671639  (covering eastern Washington, northern Idaho, western Montana and northeast Oregon)
  • Chemawa Indian School 1883-1947, 1st film 1028472  (based in Salem, Oregon)
  • Territorial Papers of Oregon 1848-1907, 12 films M1049, 1st film 1695681
  • Department of Interior 1849-1907, 10 films M0814, 1st film 1695733
  • Office of Indian Affairs Oregon Superintendency 1848-1873, 29 films, 1st film 1617787
  • Oregon Superintendency 1842-1880
