The United States of America is a federal republic consisting of 50 states, a federal district (Washington, D.C., the capital city of the United States), five major territories, and various minor islands. The 48 contiguous states and Washington, D.C., are in North America between Canada and Mexico. Alaska is an exclave in the far northwestern part of North America, connected only to Canada, and Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific. Territories of the United States are scattered throughout the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

According to the numerous decisions of the United States Supreme Court, the 50 individual states and the United States as a whole are each sovereign jurisdictions.[4] The states are not administrative divisions of the country; the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution allows states to exercise all powers of government not delegated to the federal government.

Download USA Native American Reservation Lands Shapefile Data

The Indian reservation system was created to keep Native Americans off of lands that European Americans wished to settle. The reservation system allowed indigenous people to govern themselves and to maintain some of their cultural and social traditions. The Dawes Act of 1887 destroyed the reservation system by subdividing tribal lands into individual plots.

Following classes of land reservation are established in USA

  • Indian Reservation Area
  • Alaska Native Village Statistical Areas
  • Hawaiian Home Lands
  • Oklahoma Tribal Statistical Areas
  • State Recognized Reservations
  • State Designated Tribal Statistical Areas
  • Tribal Designated Statistical Areas

There are 326 Indian Reservations in the United States.[1] Most of the tribal land base in the United States was set aside by the federal government as Native American Reservations. In California, about half of its reservations are called rancherías. In New Mexico, most reservations are called Pueblos. In some western states, notably Nevada, there are Native American areas called Indian colonies.

Alaska Natives previously had many small reserves scattered around Alaska; however, all but one (the Annette Island Reserve of Tsimshian) were repealed with the passage of the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act in 1971.

There are Hawaiian home land, area held in trust for Native Hawaiians by the state of Hawaii under the Hawaiian Homes Commission Act of 1921.

Oklahoma Tribal Statistical Area is a statistical entity identified and delineated by federally recognized American Indian tribes in Oklahoma as part of the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 Census and ongoing American Community Survey.

A state designated American Indian reservation is the land area designated by a state for state-recognized American Indian tribes who lack federal recognition.

A tribal designated statistical area is a statistical entity identified and delineated for the Census Bureau by a federally recognized American Indian tribe that does not currently have a federally established Indian reservation.
