Overview

Following the signing of the Treaty of New Echota and the final removal of the bulk of the Eastern Cherokee to the Indian [Oklahoma] Territory in 1839, one of the irksome problems confronting Cherokee leaders concerned qualification for tribal citizenship. This book concerns the rulings of the Cherokee Nation Commission on Citizenship (a creation of the Tribal Council) on cases of citizenship and is adapted from the author's earlier Mountain Press publication, "Cherokee Commission Docket Books 1898-1914"; however Mr. Bowen expects to produce one or two additional volumes in this series based on unpublished dockets. Volume One consists of abstracts of Dockets 1-286 of the Commission. Besides the names of the applicant and the presiding commissioners and the date of the determination, in most instances the transcriptions identify the names of family members and their relationship to the person(s) filing the application. In all, researchers will find references to about 4,000 Cherokee claimants in this timely volume.
