Description Excerpts concerning Utah from the Annual Report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs - Courtesy of the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections. The Commissioner of Indian Affairs reports the number of Indians and acres of land within the jurisdiction of the United States and the cost associated with fulfilling the terms of treaties entered into with those people. The Commissioner claims that there have been improvements in the disposition of Indians in Utah and credits that change to the presence of military forces (pg. 9). The Utah Superintendent of Indian Affairs describes his journey to Utah following his appointment to the Superintendency, his initial encounters and exchange of gifts with Utah Indians, his observations regarding destitution among the Indians, labor and agriculture, and the status of relations between the Indians and white settlers
