Routes to Indian Agencies and Schools

Search Fold3 for your
Native American Records

Indian agencies and schools were often found in remote locations. Traversing to them often meant taking a train, and then various stages until you reached the specific agency or school. In 1910 The Office of Indian Affairs published a manuscript for it’s field agents and other interested parties, explaining how to reach each specific agency and school in the country. We provide their report here for our readers.

The Schools are listed first by Indian Agency and then school.  Some Agencies will have many schools listed just as Day Schools.  We have tried to keep them in alphabetical order as closely as possible.  It will help to know which Indian Agency your are searching for to make the best use of this information. Some schools will appear out of order but they belong to the Agency listed above them.

For ease of use we have listed the Agencies and Schools by State.
