Current Native American Nations on U.S. Reservation Lands – Alphabetical

In this article we the United States Indian reservations listed by tribe or tribal affiliation so you can easily see which tribes live on a particular reservation. Sometimes an reservation may reflect the name of the principal tribe, but other tribes may also live on that reservation. There are only two kinds of reserved lands that are well-known: military and Indian. An Indian reserved lands are for a tribe when it relinquished its other land areas to the U.S. through treaties and received the land in trade for the tribe’s original land.

More recently, Congressional acts, Executive Orders, and administrative acts have created reservations. Today some reservations have non-Indian residents and landowners.

Approximately 56.2 million acres of land are held in trust by the United States for various Indian tribes and individuals. Much of this is reservation land; however, not all reservation land is trust land. On behalf of the United States, the Secretary of the Interior serves as trustee for such lands with many routine trustee responsibilities delegated to BIA officials.

There are approximately 275 Indian land areas in the U.S. administered as Indian reservations (reservations, pueblos, rancherias, communities, etc.). The largest is the Navajo Reservation of some 16 million acres of land in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. Many of the smaller reservations are less than 1,000 acres with the smallest less than 100 acres. On each reservation, the local governing authority is the tribal run.

The states in which reservations are located have limited powers over them, and only as provided by federal law. On some reservations, however, a high percentage of the land is owned and occupied by non-Indians.

Some 140 reservations have entirely tribally owned land.
Some tribes do not have any reservation lands, while other tribes have several.
