Indian lands are areas with boundaries established by treaty, statute, and (or) executive or court order, recognized by the Federal Government as territory in which American Indian tribes have primary governmental authority. The Bureau of Indian Affairs is responsible for the administration and management of 55.7 million acres of land held in trust by the United States for American Indians, Indian tribes, and Alaska Natives, and maintains a list of the 562 Federally recognized tribal governments.

Included are Federally-administered lands within a reservation which may or may not be considered part of the reservation. There may be private inholdings within the boundaries of the Indian lands in this map layer. Descriptive information includes the area name.
