"INDIAN POPULATION”-Continued

(face, bottom, right)

INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILLING THIS SCHEDULE.

This modified form of the general schedule for population is to be used in making the enumeration of Indians, both those on reservations and those living in family groups outside of reservations.

Detached Indians living either in white or negro families outside of reservations should be enumerated on the general population schedule (Form 8-1589) as members of the families in which they are found; but detached whites or negroes living in Indian families should be enumerated on this special Indian schedule as members of the Indian families in which they are found. In other words, every family composed mainly of Indians should be reported entirely ou this special schedule, and every family composed mainly of persons not Indian should be reported entirely on the general population schedule.

Spaces are provided for entries for 20 persons on each side (A and B) of the sheet, the entries for each person running twice to the page. Columns 1 to 46 are to be filled for each individual case, if applicable, according to the instructions.

Columns 1 to 32.— These columns are identical with those on the general population schedule. Fill each column, go far as the inquiry app, in accordance with the instructions for filling the corresponding column in the general population schedule (see book of instructions), but note the following additional instructions in relation to filling columns 1 and 2, columui, and columns 18 and 19.

Columns 1 and 2. Visitation numbers. If, in canvassing a given territory, you are using both the general population schedule (Form 8-1589) and this schedule for Indian population, make two independent series of numbers for these columns, one series in each kind of schedule, so that the last number in column 1 on this schedule added to the last number in column 1 on the general population schedule will give the whole number of dwellings visited, and, likewise, the last number in column 2 on this schedule added to the last number in column 2 on the general popu. lation schedule will give the whole number of families visited and enumerated in your entire district.

Column 7. Age at last birthday.-Some difficulty may be met in ascertaining the exact ages of Indians, as they frequently reckon their ages from notable events occurring in the history of the respective tribes. Endeavor to ascertain the years in which these notable events occurred, and with a little calculation on your part you should be able to ascertain the exact age of each Indian.

Columns 18 and 19. Occupation. If the Indian is wholly self-supporting, enter his or her occupation in columns 18 and 19 in accordance with the general instructions for returning occupations. If the Indian-man, woman, or child-has no occupation and is wholly dependent on the Government for support, write “Ration Indian” in column 18. If the Indian is partly self-supporting and partly dependent upon the Government, write the occupation in columns 18 and 19, and then the letter "R" (for ration).

Colunins 36, 37, and 38. Proportions of Indian and other blood.--If the Indian is a full-blood, write "full" in column 36, and leave columns 37 and 38 blank. If the Indian is of mixed blood, write in column3 36, 37, and 38 the fractions which show the proportions of Indian and other blood, as (column 36, Indian) 1, (column 37, white) }, and (column 38, negro) 0. For Indians of mixed bloud all three columns should be filled, and the sum, in each case, should equal 1, as, 0, $; 1, 5, 0; 1. . $; etc.

Wherever possible, the statement that an lodian is of full blood should be verified by inquiry of the older men of the tribe, as an Indian is sometimes of mixed blood without knowing it.

Columin 39. Number of times married.-If the Indian is married, enter in this column the number of times he or she ba. been married.

Column 40. Whether now living in polygamy.-If the Indian man is living with more than one wife, writo "Yes" in this column; otherwise, write "No."

In either of these two cases write "Yes" in this column.

An Indian on a reservation, without an allotment, or roaming over unsettled territory, is considered "not taxeul," and for such Indians the answer to this inquiry is "No."

Column H. If Indian has received allotment, give year of allotment. If the Indian has received an allotment of land, enter, in column 44, the year in which tbe allotment was made.

Column 15. Residing on his own lands.-If the Indian lives on his or her own land, write “Yes” in this column; if the Indian lives elsewhere, write * No."
