This list is published annually in the Federal Register pursuant to the requirements of the Federally Recognized Indian Tribes List Act (Public Law 103–454).

Tribal Leaders Directory: The National Congress of American Indians maintains a list of tribal leaders and their contact information, arranged alphabetically by tribe.

Alaska Tribes A – Z: The EPA maintains a separate list of Alaska tribes, including links to the tribes' Web sites, if available.

Tribal Directory Assessment Tool (TDAT): The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has created this tool to help identify tribes and tribal contact information to assist in the consultation process required by Sec. 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

These organizations are categorized into two types: National/Regional EPA-Supported Organizations and National/Regional Indian Organizations.
