Thank you! My other question is about how to access data for non-Indian homesteaders/land-ownders census records on Indian reservation land. It seems that there is no geographic variable for reservation land between 1880-1930. Is there a way to work around this?
I’m not sure about the best way to do what you are describing here. You are correct that the HOMELAND variable is not available in 1880-1930. I’m not certain of where to go from here. It may be worthwhile, however, reaching out to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, as they may have useful information and resources available.
