Revision as of 19:48, 12 May 2011

American Indians have long been identified by "tribal" names. In the United States, there are hundreds of names by which these tribes are known. 

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.

Some Major Tribes in the United States

The following are some of the major Indian tribes in the United States. Links to pages for these tribes are provided here. Those pages provide additional information regarding the divisions, bands, groups, etc. of these major tribes, with some brief history and links to web sites, official and otherwise, and to other pages on FamilySearch Wiki. If the official name of a tribe is known, just search for that name using the search box for this site or search for it under the state where the tribe or band is located. For example, look for the various bands of the Pomo Indians under "Indians of California."

This list is intended to be a "quick list" to the major tribes of the U.S. There are many other tribes not included in this list.
