Talk:United States Native Races Part 4 - What Should I Know about Native Americans before I Search the Records?
According to Dr. S. Lyman Tyler and others who have written about the various policy periods of the non-Indian settlers towards the Native Americans, the 1830 date for the ending of the "Conversion Period" is correct. That is, the primary efforts to as late as that date were to convert the Native American to Christianity and integrate them. All of these policy periods overlap one another.
