Dawes Rolls



The Dawes Commission was organized in 1893 to accept applications for tribal enrollment between 1893-1907 from American Indians of the Five Civilized Tribes who resided in Indian Territory, which later became the eastern portion of Oklahoma.

The five civilized tribes consist of the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek and Seminole tribes. These tribes were removed to Oklahoma in the late 1830's and early 1840's from their homelands in the southeastern United States. Each tribe was given land in what was then known as Indian Territory

Rolls were taken from the time of arrival in Oklahoma. Some pre-removal rolls exist. Rolls will vary by tribe and date. Information on each roll will also vary depending on the reason the roll was taken. Some rolls are only lists of names. Between 1898-1906, the Final Rolls of the Five Civilized Tribes were taken to determine individuals who qualified for membership in the tribes. This roll is what is used today to determine tribal enrollment. Starting with the Final Rolls, genealogists can locate ancestors who enrolled as members of one of the five tribes.
