Federally recognized tribes are those Indian tribes recognized by the United Statesmarker Bureau of Indian Affairs for certain federal government purposes.

Description

In the United Statesmarker, the Indian tribe is a fundamental unit, and the constitution grants to the U.S. Congress the right to interact with tribes. More specifically, the Supreme Court of the United Statesmarker in United States v. Sandoval (231 US. 28 [1913]) warned, "it is not... that Congress may bring a community or body of people within range of this power by arbitrarily calling them an Indian tribe, but only that in respect of distinctly Indian communities the questionswhether, to what extent, and for what time they shall be recognized and dealt with as dependent tribes" (at 46). Federal tribal recognition grants to tribes the right to certain benefits, and is largely controlled by the United States federal agency, the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

On August 11, 2009, the U.S. government's Federal Register issued an official list of 564 tribes in the Federal Register as Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible To Receive Services From the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs, which can be downloaded as a PDF document from the U.S. Library of Congressmarker: . USA.gov, the federal government's official web portal, also maintains a list of tribal governments which is constantly updated. Ancillary information present in former versions of this list but no longer contained in the current listing have been included here in italics print.
