Rancheria is a Spanish term for small Indian settlements and are peculiar to California. Similar to a reservation, they are small areas of land set aside around an Indian settlement. Before 1906, most land set aside for California Indians were designated as reservations. Between 1906 and 1934, 54 rancherias were established, as well as one "Indian village." Since 1934, five rancherias, an "Indian village," an "Indian community," and four reservations have been established. (See Indians of California - Rancherias for more information.
