United States Gotoarrow.png American Indians Gotoarrow.png Tribes of the United States

American Indians have long been identified by "tribal" names. In the United States, there are hundreds of names by which these tribes are known. See also Searching for an American Indian When the Tribe is Unknown.

Click this button for links to databases, indexes, or sites that help you find an American Indian ancestor by topic or tribe.


Federally-Recognized Tribes

There are over 330 tribal entities in the "lower 48" states, recognized by the United States government. Some of those so recognized are actually portions of a larger tribe, as in the various bands of the Chippewa Tribe, for example. The most recent list of federally-recognized Indian entities was published in the Federal Register on August 11, 2009. There are also an additional 230 American Indian entities recognized by the federal government in Alaska, also included in the Federal Register list.

Records Kept by Tribes at Tribal Headquarters

Tribal headquarters maintain official records for the use in official tribal interactions with tribal members. These records may include: Enrollment, Employee, Court, Vital records, Police, Leases, Business minutes and records unique to the tribe.

Generally only enrolled tribal members may gain assisted access to these records. The types of records available may vary from tribe to tribe.

Ancestral records and records over 100 years old may be at the Agency or the National Archives.
