FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF INDIAN

COMMISSIONERS, FISCAL YEAR ENDED JUNE 30, 1925

WASHINGTON, D. C., September 1, 1925. SIR: We have the honor to submit herewith the Fifty-sixth Annual Report of the Board of Indian Commissioners for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1925, during which members of the board visited , and inspected the following units of the Indian Service:

Tomah Indian School, Lac du Flambeau Agency, La Pointe Agency, Laona Agency, and Grand Rapids Agency in Wisconsin; Consolidated Chippewa Agency and Red Lake Reservation in Minnesota ; Fort Totten Indian School, Devils Lake Reservation, and Fort Berthold Agency in North Dakota; Fort Peck, Fort Belknap, and Blackfeet Agencies in Montana; Shoshone Agency in Wyoming; Tulalip Agency in Washington; Mission Indian Agency in California; Potawatomi Agency in Kansas; Winnebago and Omaha Reservations in Nebraska; Phoenix Indian School, Salt River Agency, and Pima Agency in Arizona; Sante Fe Indian School in New Mexico.

At the annual meeting in Washington, January 21, 1925, George Vaux, jr., of Philadelphia, Pa., was reelected chairman and Malcolm McDowell, of Washington, D. C., was reelected secretary of the board.

The special reports on the Indians and on the administration of their affairs by the Government, which have been transmitted to you from time to time, present a cross section of conditions and situations in the Indian country as a whole.

They show a generally uninterrupted continuance of Indian progress and an increased efficiency in Indian field-service activities. They also disclose the need of immediate action in some places to meet urgent requirements of the Indians and to improve the personnel and equipment of the Indian Service.

The special reports, in abridged form, are appended hereto. Our space limitation makes it impracticable for us to enlarge on the specific recommendations and suggestions which are contained in them, but we respectfully urge you to give them your particular consideration.

SOME OF THE YEAR'S ACCOMPLISHMENTS

During the year a number of questions concerning the Indians which have been of long standing were settled by appropriate actions which, in a comparatively short time, should bring them to a definite conclusion. A summary of the more important of such happenings, with explanatory comments, follows:
