Indian Tribes Associated With This Agency


The heading "Winnebago" was not used retularly for the correspondence relating to the principal agency for the Wennebago Indians until 1847. The correspondence dated before 1830 relates to Winnebago Indians rather than to the arrairs of any one agency.  The letters from 1840 to 1836 relate primarily to two subagencies for the Winnebago Indians that operated independently of the main agency at Prairie du Chien.
