About this Database
This database lists individuals who applied for the Dawes Rolls and membership in the Five Tribes: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muscogee (Creek), and Seminole. Commonly known as the Dawes Rolls, the official title of this record group is "Final Rolls of Citizens and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory." Enrollment for the Dawes Rolls began in 1898 and closed in 1907; a few individuals were added to the rolls 1914.
I have found my ancestor in the database. What now?
Once you have located your ancestor on the roll, look up their census card and enrollment packet. You can do this at the Research Center or use subscription websites (such as Fold3.com and Ancestry.com). You may also order a copy of a packet from the Research Center. Order online | Order by mail
About the Dawes Rolls
Commonly known as the Dawes Rolls, the official title of this record group is "Final Rolls of Citizens and Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory."
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 associations are listed as "by Blood," "Intermarriage," or "Freedmen." Intermarriage means the person was married to a citizen of the tribe. You may also see "IW" for intermarried white, or "A" for adopted. Freedmen are individuals who were formerly enslaved by one the Five Tribes. The term is also used to describe their descendants. Although there was intermarriage between Blacks and Indians, the Dawes Commission enrolled people of mixed heritage as Freedmen, and indicated no blood relation to the tribe.

Mississippi Choctaw include individuals who did not remove to Indian Territory with the rest of their tribe in the 1830s. Mississippi Choctaw who were deemed eligible for the roll were listed as "identified." To be admitted to the rolls, these individuals were ultimately required to remove to Indian Territory.

Delaware enrollees may be listed on Delaware cards or as an "Adopted Delaware" on Cherokee by Blood cards.

Help and Research Tips
What information do I need before I search?
You will need to trace your way back to a direct ancestor who was living in Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma) 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, preferred not enroll, or was unable to enroll.
