The United States Indian Service later became the United States. Bureau of Indian Affairs.

"Since American Indians were not given United States citizenship until 1924, these census records are one of the most important sources of federal evidence available on Native America. Often they are one of the very few records available to researchers other than tribal membership records, which are usually restricted to registered tribal citizens only. Used carefully, these records supply wonderful 'historic windows' into the family life of these peoples during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Year-by-year comparisons can supply evidence of family additions, such as the births of babies and adoptions, and other family events such as marriages or deaths. Other detailed information is sometimes included as well, including Indian names and family connections, depending on the whims of the census enumerator"--Introd.

Includes bibliography.
