ITG FAQ #2 Answer-Were there other allotment acts?


There were numerous other allotment acts. A partial list includes:

  • the Dawes Commission to the Five Civilized Tribes of March 3, 1893;
  • the Burke Act of May 8, 1906;
  • the Lacey Act of March 2, 1907; and
  • numerous allotment acts in Oklahoma.

The Five Tribes and the Osage Tribes fall under separate allotment laws. There are other tribes in Oklahoma covered by other acts as well as the General Allotment Act. Each situation should be considered on a case-by-case basis.
