    TRIBAL LEADERS DIRECTORYIncludes BIA Region & Agency Contacts


    2014 FALL/WINTER EDITION Semiannual Publication

    Published by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Indian Services, Division of Tribal Government Services

    For more information, contact the Division of Tribal Government Services at (202) 513-7641

    Initially developed as an internal reference document to aid division employees in their work, the Directory is now one of Indian Affairs most requested publications, used by federal, state and local governments, news media, business, researchers, and the general public to connect with Indian Country. In response to the volume of requests, the Directory is now posted on the Bureau of Indian Affairs web site at the following internet address:

    NOTE: Tribal elections and other changes in tribal leadership occur throughout the year. The information contained in this edition was the most current information available at the time of publication and will remain until the publication of the next edition. All updates are coordinated through BIA central and regional Tribal Government Services offices.


    The Directory is not an official listing of the federally recognized tribes; however, it should be used in conjunction with the current Federal Register Notice of Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible to Receive Services from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs, which is the official listing of all federally recognized tribes in the U.S. pursuant to Section 104 under the Federally Recognized Indian Tribe List Act of 1994 (Pub. L. 103-454, 108 Stat. 4791-4792). The most recent Notice was published in the Federal Register, 79 Fed. Reg. No. 19 (January 29, 2014).
