Description Excerpts concerning Utah from the Annual Report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs - Courtesy of the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections. Commissioner of Indian Affairs H.R. Clum presents a report outlining relations between Indian tribes and the federal government, roadblocks to the development of schools, and plans to "civilize" the Indians. Special Agent M.P. Berry reports that crickets destroyed crops in Utah and that he had to send many Bannocks out on hunting and fishing expeditions in order to alleviate stress on the territory's economy and resources. Uintah Valley Agent J.J. Critchlow describes his journey to Utah to take Tourtellotte's position and his dissatisfaction with his new agency, the amount of food and resources available for the Indians, the construction of fences on agency property, and the economic and health-related status of the Indians represented by the agency. Employees of the Shohsone-Bannock Agency in Wyoming also submit reports.
