The Northern Idaho Agency was established in 1938 as a successor to the Coeur d'Alene Agency. The Fort Lapwai Agency had been combined with the Coeur d'Alene Agency in 1933. Hence the responsibility for the Nez Perce Indians also was included in the new Northern Idaho 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, roll 302. 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 number 579712). These census rolls are also available online at Ancestry.com's subscription web site.
