  • Resource Database / Nations Web Sites & Information / United States Indigenous Peoples / Locally Recognized Tribal Groups


    Listings here are separated into to US Federally "recognized" or "unrecognized" tribes. Realizing the controversy surrounding governmental "recognition", NativeWeb utilizes BIA criteria only for listing purposes in our Resource Center. Visitors are encouraged to contact individual web sites listed for specific information about recognized tribal governments, reservations, and contacts.

    The Library of Congress maintains a list of "Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible to Receive Services from the United Sates Bureau of Indian Affairs"

    The Code of Federal Regulations, Title 25, Part 83 describes the "Procedures for Establishing that an American Indian Group Exists as An Indian Tribe."

    See the website for the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) for further information.
