Indians on reservations and in the general population were identified on the census sheet in column 5, Color or Race. When identified, the census taker added their names to a Special Indian Schedule. This schedule asked additional questions such as tribe and percent blood. Special Indian Schedules are usually found at the end of the county, but sometimes are grouped together on last roll of microfilm for the state.
Indians living with non-Indian families outside of reservations were enumerated on the general schedule with those families.
Search for the county that the Reservation was located in, then search the end of the county for the Special Indian Population schedule. Some states listed the Special Indian Population schedule at the end of the entire state enumeration.
