=== History ===
Rocky Boy's Agency was established shortly after Rocky Boy's Reservation was set off in September of 1916 to serve the Chippewa-Cree Indians of northern Montana. Its agency was separated from [[Fort Belknap Indian Agency (Montana)|Fort Belknap]], 1 July 1917, and has continued to function to the present..
=== Records ===
Agencies and subagencies were created as administrative offices of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and its predecessors. Their purpose was (and is) to manage Indian affairs with the tribes, to enforce policies, and to assist in maintaining the peace. The names and location of these agencies may have changed, but their purpose remained basically the same. '''Many of the records of genealogical value (for the tribe and tribal members) were created by and maintained by the agencies'''.
