Indian Tribes Associated With This Agency

Potawatomi, Kansa

History

The Potawatomi Agency was established in 1851 for the Potawatomi and Kansas Indians. A separate Kansas Agency for the Kansa was established in 1855. By 1871, only the Prairie Band of Potawatomi remained in Kansas, as the rest had moved to Indian Territory.

In 1874, the Kickapoo Agency was consolidated with the Potawatomi Agency. At that time, it was the only agency in Kansas and was often called the Kansas Agency. In 1876, the Chippewa and Munsee were assigned to the Potawatomi Agency. In 1882, the Potawatomi Agency and the Great Nemaha Agency were merged[1].

In 1903, the agency was divided into the Potawatomi Agency (for the Potawatomi) and the Kickapoo (for the Kickapoo, Sauk and Fox, and Iowa). They were again merged as the Kickapoo Agency, 1 July 1919. However, the name was changed to the Potawatomi Agency, 1 January 1921. On 1 April 1927, the Potawatomi was placed under the Haskell Institute, again became independent in January 1935[2].

In 1950, the agency was renamed the Potawatomi Area Field Office. And in 1964, the name was again changed to the Horton Agency, by which it is known today[3].
