June 13, 2016 – Acting Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs Lawrence S. Roberts announced the availability of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Tribal Leaders Directory in Searchable Electronic Map Format. The interactive map is an updated way to navigate the twelve regions of the BIA, its regional offices and agencies, and federally recognized tribes to more effectively connect with Indian Country. The map also offers accurate contact information for tribal leaders, Office of the Assistant Secretary personnel and BIA regional office and agency personnel. The map is not an official list of the federally recognized tribes, and is intended to be used in conjunction with the official listing: Federal Register Notice of Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible to Receive Services from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs. The interactive map will be updated monthly and is available for download in Excel format by Contacting the Office of Indian Services Division of Tribal Government Services.
