The Jicarilla Agency was established in 1901, and its records include some from predecessors. The Jicarilla Apache, which this agency served, were assigned to the Southern Ute Agency from 1887 to 1891, and to the Pueblo and Jicarilla Agency from 1891 to 1901.


The 1900 federal census included population schedules for the Jicarilla Apache Indians in New Mexico. The Indians residing on this reservation in 1900 were under the jurisdiction of the Jicarilla Agency and are listed on Indian Population Schedules as District 184, Jicarilla Apache Reservation, in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico.
