  The final roll for allotting the land and terminating the Cherokee/Shawnee Nation of Oklahoma. Senator Henry L. Dawes was the commission's, and consequently, the name Dawes is associated with the final roll. This is 1 of 15 Indian Rolls) The roll turned out to not be as final as it was expected to be. Upon the reorganization of the Cherokee Nation, one must prove ancestry to a person enrolled by Dawes.
