Notes

Microfilm of originals in the Oklahoma Historical Society, Indian Archives Division, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Some text written in the Cherokee language.

WITH: Cherokee Nation records.

Includes correspondence, census records, enrollment records, laws and acts, journals, national council and senate records, court records, vital records, probate records, land and property records, school records, and other miscellaneous documents.

The Cherokee Nation in Indian Territory maintained its own constitutional government and records for many years in its districts (Canadian, Cooweescoowee, Delaware, Flint, Going Snake, Illinois, Salin, Sequoyah, and Talhequah) and at its capital at Tahlequah.

The Archives volume number is given first in identification, then an original title, if one was given, then an Archives title if one was assigned. In some cases one title will be given if there is an agreement between all titles on, in, or assigned to the volume. Cherokee volumes often contain a variety of different entries. These will be briefly outlined on each content page for each volume.

The National Records kept by the Cherokee Nation are considered to be valuable to historians and others because they represent, along with the national tribal records of the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole, the largest group of records of sovereign Indian nations known to exist to this date. As such they give a view of Indian history that is unknown for other American Indian tribes who did not have constitutional governments and written records.

Some pages wanting.
