Indian Tribes Associated With This Agency

Umpqua and Rogue River


An agency was created in 1850, mostly for the Umpqua and Rogue River Indians, in the southwestern part of Oregon, particularly the Rogue River Valley. It opereated for only a short time, for by about 1856, most of the Indians had removed to the Coast Reservation and the agent was moved to the Grand Ronde Agency.


Later records for the Indians of this area are found with the records of the Grand Ronde Agency.
