The Footnote Interactive Native American Collection

The latest collection on Footnote.com is the Native American Collection.

The Footnote Interactive Native American Collection features original historical documents including:

* Ratified Indian Treaties - dating back to 1722
* Indian Census Rolls - featuring personal information including age, place of residence and degree of Indian blood
* The Guion Miller Roll - perhaps the most important Cherokee genealogical research
* Dawes Packets - containing original applications for tribal enrollments
* And other documents relating to the Five Civilized Tribes
