This paper discusses the implementation of the 1990 Decennial Census at the Akwesasne Reservation (Franklin County, New York) in the context of contemporaneous social and political conditions at Akwesasne. Two reports which are relevant to the present paper were previously submitted to the U.S. Census Bureau. The first described the historical and cultural background of the Reservation; the second provided a preliminary view of circumstances and attitudes which might affect censusing there.' As it turns out, some of the predictions offered in the second report did in fact materialize.
