Dear Ms. Thayer,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Today, the White Earth band of the overall Chippewa in Minnesota are administered by the Minnesota Agency of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. There was a White Earth Agency up until the 1920’s, when it was combined into the Consolidated Chippewa Agency. The General Reservation Censuses, 1889 - 1940 are in the custody of the National Archives at Kansas City (RM-KC) that include some earlier censuses that have not been digitized for the White Earth Agency. For access to these records, please contact RM-KC via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ancestry has some census rolls of the White Earth Reservation. There may be a fee for this service. Or you may view these records online at one NARA's facilities for free via ALIC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/. Also, the FamilySearch wiki has digitized records pertaining to the White Earth Reservation.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
