Originally, the government seat of the Crow Reservation was located elsewhere. First was located 8 miles east of Livingston yet very near Yellowstone River. After the whites broke other treaty promises (illicitly stole most of the promised land - Reservation) in 1875, they again moved the new agency of government for this Reservation, to near what is now Absarokee, Montana. Treaty agreements in 1875, stipulated that the Bighorn River was a boundary between the Crow and Cheyenne. Reservation land east of Little Bighorn River was for the Cheyenne, while Reservation land west of Bighorn River, was for the Crow. Thus, the reason for including Crow Agency as a community of Northern Cheyenne Reservation. In 1884, the agency was again moved to what is now Crow Agency. It's no coincidence that Northern Cheyenne Reservation was set aside in 1884.
