BOOK - Records of The Federal Department Of Indian Affairs
At The National Archives Of Canada

By Bill Russell, Archivist

Updated in 2005 to include the reorganization of Library and Archives Canada and the latest electronic finding aids. The volumes of material held in RG 10 make up the historical collection of the federal Department of Indian Affairs. The records of status Indians and Inuit, Métis and non-status Indians, as well as employees of the administration and those who dealt with both groups are herein documented and illustrated.

In this work, Mr Russell discusses four groups of people reflected in these documents and guides readers through their use for each of these groups. The most important are , of course, the status Indians - those natives for whom the Indian Affairs administration exists; followed by those Aboriginal peoples whose status does not come within the meaning of the Indian Act -- the Inuit, the Métis, and the non-status Indians. The third grooup whose lives are documented in RG 10 are the employees of the administration, both the regular DIA staff, at headquarters and in the field, and those whose services were purchased or subsidized by the department. The fourth group, those from non-Indian population who had dealings with Indians or with the Department of Indian Affairs, such as those individuals who purchased surrendered Indian lands from the government, are also covered here.

Well-documented and illustrated, this work should prove helpful to the researcher wishing to investigate an ancestor found within any of the above mentioned groups.
