Indian Land Areas Judicially Established 1978 and American Indian Reservations
2013 ESRI Mapping the Nation Map Book.
The judicially established Indian lands are based on information provided by the Indian Claims Commission.
The Indian Claims Commission was established by Congress in 1946 to settle land claim disputes between American Indians and the US Government.
This map portrays the 1978 judicially established American Indian land areas that resulted from the cases before the US Indian Claims Commission or US Court of Claims in which an American Indian tribe proved its original tribal occupancy of tract within the continental US.
These areas are shown in relation to the federally recognized tribal entity boundaries last updated in 2016 along with the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and regional office locations.
