Statement of the delegates of the Mississippi, Alabama and
Louisiana Choctaw Council with reference to the following
subjects: First the nature of their claims. Second the proposed
legislation now pending before Congress. Third the need for
relief. Fourth, the approval of their general contract.
Washington, D. C,
January 21, 1914.
Of the 1,923 persons identified as Mississippi Choctaws on
this report of March 10, 1899, also known as the McKennon
Roll, less than half, or 880, are now on the final citizenship
rolls of the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma; 1,063 are not on
these rolls and are now claimants to an interest in the Choctaw
estate. Of this number 538 individuals were never placed on
any other roll of identified Mississippi Choctaws, while the
remaining 525 individuals, after re-examination by the
commission during 1901 and 1902, were included in the
rolls of identified Mississippi Choctaws approved by the
Secretary of the Interior on February 14, 1903.

ENROLLMENT CARDS FOR THE FIVE CIVILIZED TRIBES 1898-1914
On 93 rolls of this microfilm publication are reproduced the enrollment cards that were prepared by the staff of the Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes between 1898 and 1914. These records are part of Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Record Group (RG) 75, and are housed in the Archives Branch of the Federal Archives and Records Center, Fort Worth, Tex.
An act of Congress approved March 3, 1893 (27 Stat. 645), authorized the establishment of the Commission to negotiate agreements with the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole tribes providing for the dissolution of the tribal governments and the allotment of land to each tribal member. Senator Henry L. Dawes of Massachusetts was appointed Chairman of this Commission on November 1, 1893, after which it has commonly been referred to as the Dawes Commission.The Commission was authorized by an act of Congress approved June 28, 1898 (30 Stat. 495), to prepare citizenship ==(tribal membership) rolls for each tribe. These final rolls were the basis for allotment. Under this act, subsequent acts, and resulting agreements negotiated with each tribe, the Commission received applications for membership covering more than 250,000 people and enrolled more than 101,000. The tribal membership rolls were closed on March 4, 1907, by an act of Congress approved on April 26, 1906 (34 Stat. 370), although an additional 312 persons were enrolled under an act approved August 1, 1914.
The Commission enrolled individuals as "citizens" of a tribe under the following categories: Citizens By Blood, Citizens by Marriage, New Born Citizens By Blood (enrolled under an act of Congress approved March 3, 1905), Minor Citizens By Blood (enrolled under an act of Congress approved April 26, 1906), Freedmen (former black slaves of Indians, later freed and admitted to tribal citizenship), New Born Freedmen, and Minor Freedmen. Delaware Indians adopted by the Cherokee tribe were enrolled as a separate group within the Cherokee. Within each enrollment category, the Commission generally maintained three types of cards: "Straight" cards for persons whose applications were approved, "D" cards for persons whose applications were considered doubtful and subject to question, and "R" cards for persons whose applications were rejected. Persons listed on "D" cards were subsequently transferred to either "Straight" or "R" cards depending on the Commission's decisions. All decisions of the Commission were sent to the Secretary of the Interior for final approval.
Persons listed on "R" cards or "Rejected" Cards, depending on the Commission's decisions were subsequently transferred to either "Straight" Cards, Whereas; the Commission considered enrollment of individuals as "citizens" of a tribe and all decisions of the Commission were sent to the Secretary of the Interior for final approval.

United States Congressional Serial Set-"Relief of the Five Civilized Tribes”
Page-153-Thus a serious defect was discovered in the proceedings affecting this class of enrollment cases, but the discovery came too late to be of any value in the
enrollment work. Nor is this all. A few days later, to wit, February 19, 1907, the decision of the Attorney General of February 19, 1907, was rendered. In the haste which was made to apply said opinion, it was construed to affect not only the specific Choctaw and Chickasaw cases mentioned therein, but also numerous cases in the Cherokee and Creek Nations. The result was that certain persons who had theretofore been enrolled were stricken off hurriedly, upon the supposition that an adverse decision was rendered as to them by the United States court for the Northern District of Indian Territory. Others having analogous cases, but who had not as yet been placed upon the final rolls, were denied enrollment in the original decisions based on the same grounds.
5. Census card records in the office of the Commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes.—The Commissioner to the Five Civilized Tribes prepared a card index of citizenship cases. The information appearing upon these cards was obtained from various sources. Sometimes it was noted upon the card directly from the statements of the applicants, while in other cases it was gleaned from the typewritten records. Ordinarily there will be found upon a card the names of the persons comprising a family. The cards consist of three classes:
1. “*Straight " Cards*, upon which were listed those persons having tribal enrollment, and having a prima facie right to enrollment, and against whom no protest was made by the representative of the tribes.
2. "Doubtful " cards, on which were placed the names of persons whose cases were protested by the representatives of the tribe, or where deemed doubtful because of some defect or defects in the showing, for example, non-residence. failure to prove Indian blood, etc.
3. "R " cards, upon which were listed the names of persons who either made no claim to tribal enrollment, or could make no showing to tribal recognition and right to enrollment. Generally speaking, the people who were listed on these cards were prima facie not entitled to enrollment.
The letter “R” stood primarily for “rejected” but in the course of a very short
time this list was made to include cards where rejections had not occurred
Probably this series, in its inception, was based upon the *field decision of
Commissioner McKennon, who, after a brief examination, immediately
rendered a decision which was a mere memorandum of action, being as
follows:" Enrollment Refused.
Some of the persons whose names were listed upon “D” (doubtful) and *"R" ==•cards were afterwards found entitled to enrollment, and when decisions were rendered in their favor, their names were transferred to straight cards* Proper notation was placed upon such “D” and "R cards, showing what disposition was made of the cases, and the number of the straight card to which their names were then transferred Thus, it may occur in a number of cases that there were two cards for one name, but not in the same series.As the cards are arranged to-day, it will be found that there are separate boxes for straight cards, the " D " cards, and the" R " cards. To represent the Choctaw cases there are approximately 6,084 straight cards, 1,009 " D " cards, and 756 " R " cards.
A system of cards was also used to represent the Mississippi Choctaw cases. I think that there were two series of these cards, one for admitted cases and one for rejected cases.
There was a class of cases known as “memorandum cases.” I understand that these cases were kept separate in the Cherokee and Creek Nations. They were so classified because, while under the act of May 31,1900, the commission was forbidden to receive or make application for the enrollment of any person whose name was not upon the tribal rolls, or who had not been admitted to enrollment by the tribal authorities; the department required a memorandum to be made in order that its approval of the action of the commission might be based upon some definite information.
From, the foregoing it will be readily seen that the records of the Dawes
Commission are in such a condition that it can be immediately ascertained what action was taken in any particular case, and the pertinent facts connected therewith.
In addition such cards show where the records in the case can be found, as well as all action taken thereon both by the commission and by the department.
DAWES FINAL ENROLLMENT CARDS-
An enrollment card, sometimes referred to by the Commission as a "census card," records the information provided by individual applications submitted by members of the same family group or household and includes notation of the actions taken. The information given for each applicant includes name, roll number (individual's number if enrolled), age, sex, degree of Indian blood, relationship to the head of the family group, parents' names, and references to enrollment on earlier rolls used by the Commission for verification of eligibility.
*The card often includes references to kin-related enrollment cards and notations about births, deaths, changes in marital status, and actions taken by the Commission and the Secretary of the Interior. Within each enrollment category, the cards are arranged numerically by a "field" or "census card" number, which is separate from the roll number. The index to the final rolls, which is reproduced on roll 1 of this publication, provides the roll number for each person while the final rolls themselves provide the census card numbers for each enrollee. No indexes have been located for the majority of the "D" and "R" cards. There are a few Mississippi Choctaw "Identified" and "Field Cards" as well as some Chlckasaw "Canceled" that refer to person.* never finally enrolled.
