NOTE.-The spelling of the tribal names in the column "Name of tribe
occupying reservation" has been submitted to Maj. J. W. Powell, and
revised by him where the 
correct name of such tribes is known. In many cases corrupted names have
come into such general use as to make it impolitic to change them.
