The Indians of New York are those of the Six Nations, living upon reservations retained from the lands they originally occupied, and a few scattered Indians of various tribes.

The civilized (self-supporting) Indians of New York, counted in the general census, number 726 (383 males and 343 females), and are distributed as follows:

Chautauqua County, 24; Chemung County, 27; Essex County, 17; Jefferson County, 25; Kings County, 62; Lewis County; 33; Madison County, 84; Monroe County, 23; New York County, 52; Oneida County, 62; Onondaga County, 22; Queens County, 30; St. Lawrence County, 17; Saratoga County, 25; Suffolk County, 50; Warren County, 42; other counties (13 or less in each), 131.

This is aside from the 5,309 of the Six Nations who are discussed among Indians not taxed.

As in New England, there are state obligations still recognized toward these remnants of tribes.
