Directory of American Indian Tribes.
Northern Arizona Univ., Flagstaff. Inst. for Human Development.
This directory provides general information on American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and lands. The information was compiled from several resources including the "Federal Register," the Bureau of Indian Affairs, "The Native American Almanac" (A. Hirschfelder, M. K. de Montano), the "Atlas of North American Indian Tribes" (Carl Waldman), the "Reference Encyclopedia of the American Indian" (Barry Klein), "The Indian Tribes of North America" (John Swanton), the "Handbook of North American Indians" (William Sturtevant), and the "Tribal Leaders Directory." Part 1 lists over 700 tribes by state and includes the address, telephone number, and status of the tribe in relation to the federal government. Status information indicates whether the tribe has gained federal recognition, has petitioned for federal recognition, was denied federal recognition, was restored federal recognition, has gained state recognition, or has been determined ineligible to petition for federal or state recognition. Part 2 lists over 300 Indian lands by state, including reservations, rancherias, colonies, and historic Indian areas. Entries include the tribe affiliated with the land, the date the land was established, and number of acres. They also indicate whether the land is recognized as a federal or state reservation, or is unrecognized by federal or state governments but is considered a reservation by people living there. Includes alphabetical indexes for tribes and lands. (LP)
