You can click on the names below to explore documents associated with them. In this list, “Historical” means this version of the name of a tribe or group of tribes appears in one or more of the historical documents. The label “Modern” appears on the official federally recognized names of tribes in use today. In some cases, this has been matched to names used in historic documents using correspondence information supplied by the US Forest Service, which has had to develop this information to aid compliance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). If your tribe has a preferred name that’s different than your federally recognized name, please contact us so we may add your preferred name.
