History:  

INDUS Township (T. 159N, R. 25W) received this name of a great river in western India by the suggestion of Rev. M. F. Smootz, a homesteader beside the Rainy River, who had been a missionary in that country. The village in section 4 of the township had a post office, 1902-74, first established in Itasca County.
