        The Dawes Commission / Native American - Boyds
 

An act of Congress approved March 3,1893 authorized the establishment of
the Commission to negotiate agreements with the Cherokee, Choctaw,
Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole tribes providing for the dissolution of
the tribal governments and the allotment of land to each tribal member.
Senator Henry L. Dawes of Massachusetts was appointed Chairman of this
Commission on November 1,1893, after which it has commonly been referred
to as the Dawes Commission.

The Commission enrolled individuals as 'citizens' of a tribe under the
following categories: citizens by blood, citizens by marriage, new born
citizens by blood (enrolled under an act of Congress approved March 3,
1905), minor citizens by blood (enrolled under an act of Congress
approved April 26,1906), freedmen (former black slaves of Indians, later
freed and admitted to tribal citizenship), new born freedmen, and minor
freedmen. Delaware Indians adopted by the Cherokee tribe were enrolled
as a separate group within the Cherokee.

There is a census card which recorded the information provided by
individual applicants from the same family group or household. The cards
provide notation of the Dawes Committee action taken, rejected,
approved, doubtful. They also give, for each applicant, name, enrollment
number, age, sex, degree of Indian Blood, relationship to head of
family, parent's names,references to enrollment on earlier Rolls (used
by the commission for verification of eligibility).There are often
references to enrollment cards of relatives, and notations about births,
deaths,changes in marital status, and actions taken by the Commission
and the Secretary of the Interior. The card numbers DO NOT match the
Roll numbers. There is an index to the final rolls which provides the
Roll number for each person. The actual applications may contain
information which is not on the Census card. You should examine both the
Census Card and the Application.
