Indian Tribes of the Northwest Region

Posted By Dennis On In America,Native American | No Comments

The Northwest Region was created by an Act of Congress in 1946. It is under the general administrative supervision of the Regional Director, who provides overall leadership, direction, and technical assistance in the implementation of Bureau programs operated for the benefit of tribes and individual Indians at fifteen (15) agencies and field stations located in the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and southeastern Alaska. There are approximately 94,150 Indian people of forty five (45) federally recognized tribes living on or near reservations, which exceed five (5) million acres in total size. The primary commercial quality natural resources include nearly 2.66 million acres of timberland and 165,000 acres of woodlands, over 4.8 million acres of Indian trust land, and a broad variety of commercial anadromous fish, shellfish, and other types of seafood harvested in both fresh and salt water.
