It is very difficult, if not impossible, to say in what manner and
to what extent the Indian policy of the republic influenced the
policy of the state. While Texas was independent and not con-
nected by any bonds to another nation, she was free to adopt and
pursue any policy that she deemed best; but when she became a
sister state in the Union, the situation changed. As a member
of the Federal Union, Texas had no policy of her own; she
accepted the extension of the Federal policy over her domain.
The central government assumed all responsibility in regard to
the Indian question, as will appear throughout this paper; and
Texas, being most vitally concerned, assisted the general govern-
ment in executing her policy. The purpose of this thesis is to
describe the federal policy as it was applied to Texas, and to show
how the state government assisted the nation in her efforts to
administer her Indian affairs.
