Tribal Initiative

Tribes often have different conservation priorities than other producers and tribal culturally based priorities such as the management of traditional Native American food and fiber plants are not priorities for mainstream producers. There are 109 Federally Recognized American Indian Tribes in California; and, at least 69 Non-Federally Recognized Tribes in California petitioning for federal recognition (BIA).

The Federally recognized tribes have jurisdiction over 635,739 acres of Tribal Trust Land in California. There are 17,602 acres of Public Domain Allotments representing the land controlled by non-federally recognized tribes. The acreage of fee land controlled by federally recognized tribes, non-federally recognized tribes, and Native American Indian individuals is not available.
