Digitized Version of Kappler’s Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties Now Available

The U.S. Government Publishing Office and Oklahoma State University’s Edmon Low Library have partnered to make the digital versions of Indian Affairs: Laws and Treaties, available on GPO’s govinfo.

This eight volume publication (commonly called Kappler’s after its original editor) was digitized by the Edmon Low Library and contributed to govinfo through a Digital Content Contributor partnership.

Kappler’s is a compilation containing U.S. treaties, laws, and executive orders pertaining to Native American Indian tribes. The volumes cover U.S. Government treaties with Native Americans from 1778-1883 (Volume II) and U.S. laws and executive orders concerning Native Americans from 1871-1970 (Volumes I, III-VII). A supplement compiling Code of Federal Regulations related to Native Americans was published in 1975.
