          Dear Ms. Navejar,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Indian Census Rolls, 1885-1941 in the Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (Record Group 75) that comprise the National Archives Microfilm Publication No. M595 which may contain information that you are seeking about Nora Rodd. These records are not digitized and available yet in the Catalog.


          However, they are digitized and available on Ancestry for you to search using U.S. Indian Census Rolls. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, you may view these records online at one NARA's facilities for free via a NARA PC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/. Also, some of the images from Ancestry are available for free on Family Search at https://www.familysearch.org/en/.


          We suggest that you search the National Archives website Researching an Individual or Family for background information and tips on how to determine the tribe that your relative may have been a members of and to ascertain the records that might be useful to your research. There is an all encompassing resource for Native American individuals which are found among the Records of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (Record Group 75). These records are organized by tribal nation. Once you determine the state where your relatives may have lived via other sources, then you should be able to look at nearby tribes and bands. Please note that many American Indians who left reservations will not be captured in Federal records which would make identifying tribal affiliations even more difficult.


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
