The Fort Lapwai Agency was a continuance of the older Nez Perce Agency and was given the name when the Superintendent of the Fort Lapwai Indian School was assigned the duties of Indian agent in 1902. It operated under that name until 1933, when it was combined with the Coeur d'Alene Agency.

Annual Indian Census Rolls were taken at this agency from 1890 thru 1901. These rolls have been microfilmed by the National Archives as part of their Microcopy Number M595, rolls 145-148. Copies of these records are also available at the National Archives, their Regional Archives, and at the Family History Library and its family history centers (their microfilm numbers 576831-576837). These census rolls are also available online at Ancestry.com's subscription web site.
