have added this page as a resource aid for those seeking
information with regard to Native American Peoples.
It is the complete, as is found, listing as of 11/20/01.
It is interesting and informative to be sure, but the real
reason I put it here is hopefully to keep some of you from getting
lost in the maze of “government” cyber mazes, I sure did.
In fact, had my ‘puter been facing the window instead of the
wall, I would have pushed it out the window several times! Lol!
any rate, I hope it aids you...
Notice is hereby given of the current list of 556 tribal entities
recognized and eligible for funding and services from the Bureau of
Indian Affairs by virtue of their status as Indian tribes. This notice
is published pursuant to Section 104 of the Act of November 2, 1994
(Pub. L. 103-454; 108 Stat. 4791, 4792).
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Daisy West, Bureau of Indian
Affairs, Division of Tribal Government Services, MS-4631-MIB, 1849 C
Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20240. Telephone number: (202) 208-2475.
INFORMATION: This notice is published in exercise of authority
delegated to the Assistant Secretary - Indian Affairs under 25 U.S.C.
2 and 9 and 209 DM 8.
Published below are
lists of federally acknowledged tribes in the contiguous 48 states and
in Alaska. The list is updated from the one published on December 30,
1998 (63 FR 71941), to include name changes or corrections, and two
additional tribal entities that were acknowledged under 25 CFR Part
83. Those tribal entities are the Match-e-be-nash-she-wish Band of
Pottawatomi Indians of Michigan, and the Snoqualmie Tribe. The final
determinations for federal acknowledgment became effective on August
23, 1999, and October 6, 1999, respectively.
The listed entities are acknowledged to have
the immunities and privileges available to other federally
acknowledged Indian tribes by virtue of their government-to-government
relationship with the United States as well as the responsibilities,
powers, limitations and obligations of such tribes. We have continued
the practice of listing the Alaska Native entities separately solely
for the purpose of facilitating identification of them and reference
to them given the large number of complex Native names.
