     The Grand Ronde reservation was was established by treaty in 1854 and 1855 and by an Executive Order in 1857.  As a result, more than 20 separate tribes confederated and moved on to the 33,000 acre reservation.  The General Allotment Act of 1887 terminated the reservation until a 25,791 acres were sold off in 1901.  The tribe purchased acreage in 1936, but that reservation fell victim to the Termination Act of 1954.  The reservation was reinstated with the signing of the Grand Ronde Restoration Act with 9,811 acres of the original reservation regained in 1988 when the bill was signed by Ronald Reagan.
