Indian Land Areas Judicially Established 1978
The “Indian Land Areas Judicially Established 1978” map was prepared by the United States Geological Survey at a scale of 1:4,000,000, Albers projection from information provided by the Indian Claims Commission. The map portrays the results of cases before the commission in which an Indian tribe proved its original tribal occupancy of a tract within the continental United States. Each tract is outlined with a solid black line. The number on each tract refers to the Indian Land Area Map Index in the commission’s final report. A dashed line around an area indicates that the case was settled before an exact area was defined. Adjacent tracts with the same color indicate a tribal relationship. Otherwise, the coloring is arbitrary.
