Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan, 1855-1868


The author has arranged this book by "band," and uses such sources as the 1855 Ottawa and Chippewa Annuity Roll, the Sault Ste. Marie Chippewa Annuity Roll, per capita rolls, and the goods and supplies lists. All of the information contained in this work has been transcribed from the records of the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs. These records are part of the holdings of the National Archives in Washington, DC. The annuity and per capita rolls were taken to determine eligibility of persons of Indian descent to receive money, as a result of congressional legislation and treaties signed between Indian tribes and the United States government.
