Description Excerpts concerning Utah from the Annual Report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs - Courtesy of the University of Wisconsin Digital Collections. Commissioner Browning discusses enrollment in schools, allotment distribution, the issuing of patents, protocol regarding timber and logging, and conditions on various reservations across the country.
