Tribal Leaders Directory provides a tribes’ name, address, phone, and fax number for each of the 565 Federally-recognized Tribes. There may be an email or website address listed for the tribal entity if they have provided it to the BIA. Each tribe is listed in three sections, by the BIA region that provides services to them, the state they are located in, and in alphabetical order. The Directory also provides information on the BIA Regions and agency offices.
