Information Included on the Dawes Roll

Census Cards

Census cards list the enrollee's name, age, sex, blood quantum, tribe, place of residence, and roll number. In general, the age shown on the census card is the age of the individual around 1902. Members of the same household are typically listed on the same card. Those listed as "newborns" and "minors" were born after enrollment began in 1898 but before March of 1907, and are listed on a separate card. Census cards may also reference earlier rolls.

Blood Quantum, Freedmen, Intermarriage, and Adopted Citizens

Tribal association will be listed as "by Blood," "Intermarriage," or "Freedmen." Freedmen indicate the former slaves of the Five Tribes and their descendants. Intermarriage indicates the person was married to a citizen of the tribe. You may also see "IW" for intermarried white, or "A" for adopted.

Enrollment and Allotment Packets

Enrollment packets provide details about the individual and their family, including marriage, birth, and death information. They may include transcripts of interviews with family members or neighbors, and correspondence regarding the enrollment.

Allotment packets contain information about the individual's land allotment, plat maps, correspondence, and other documents. Enrollment and allotment packets vary in length from a single page to more than 100 pages. Please note that while Creek application packets are not available, you may still order allotment packets.

About the Dawes Rolls

Officially known as The Final Rolls of the Citizens and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory, the Dawes Rolls list individuals who chose to enroll and were approved for membership in the Five Civilized Tribes (Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole.) Enrollment for the Dawes Rolls began in 1898 and ended in 1906.

What information do I need?

To search the rolls you will need the name of an individual who was alive and living in Indian Territory during the enrollment period (1898–1906). If the individual was a married woman, you should look for her under her married name.

I cannot locate my ancestor in the index. What should I do now?

Look for your ancestor on the 1900 US census. If your ancestor did not live in Indian Territory, it is extremely unlikely they will be on the rolls. If they were living in Indian Territory, check the available lists for rejected Dawes applications. Consider the possibility your ancestor belonged to another tribe or did not apply for enrollment.

For further information about tribal citizenship, contact the tribe directly.
