|The 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. You may find additional related website listings under the categories for History and Organizations.
Visitors are encouraged to contact individual web sites listed for specific
information about recognized tribal governments, reservations, and contacts.
