BIA finally publishes annual list of federally recognized entities
Thursday, August 9, 2012
Filed Under: Law | National
More on: bia, federal register
The Bureau of Indian Affairs is finally publishing a list of federally recognized tribes as required by law.

The Federally Recognized Indian Tribe List Act of 1994 requires the BIA to publish the list "annually on or before every January 30." More than six months later, a notice will appear in tomorrow's issue of the Federal Register but without an explanation for the delay.

"The listed entities are acknowledged to have the immunities and privileges available to other federally acknowledged Indian tribes by virtue of their government-to-government relationship with the United States as well as the responsibilities, powers, limitations and obligations of such tribes," the notice states.

Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible to Receive Services (August 10, 2012)
