APPENDIX I.

REVISED SPELLING OF NAMES OF INDIAN TRIBES AND BANDS.

The spelling of the names of Indian tribes, bands, etc., contained in the following list has been agreed upon by the Bureau of American Ethnology and the Indian Bureau. So far as practicable the names are spelled phonetically, but it has been found advisable in several instances to retain, unchanged, names of foreign origin and those that have long been used as geographic terms. Except in the few instances noted the same form should be used for both singular and plural. Where a cross reference is given, the spelling referred to is the one adopted.
