Indian Land Allotments Patents and Trusts in Michigan
By Chosen County

 

THE DAWES ACT - On February 8, 1887, Congress passed the Dawes Act or General Allotment Act. Senator Henry Dawes of Massachusetts was the original author of this act. The law allowed for the president to break up reservation land, which was held in common by the members of a tribe, into small allotments to be parceled out to individuals. Native Americans registering on a tribal roll were granted allotments of the old reservation land. Each head of family would receive 80 acres; each single person over 21 receive 40 acres; and other single persons under 21 would receive 20 acres.
