Federally Recognized Tribes Associated With Arkansas

This is a list of federally recognized Indian tribes that have a historical association with the State of Arkansas. It is compiled to assist federal agencies in meeting their Section 106 review responsibilities under the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended.

Under the implementing regulations of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (36 CFR Part 800), federal agencies are required to consult with federally recognized Indian tribes on all undertakings. The purpose of this consultation is to identify historic properties in the area of potential effects that may be of cultural and religious significance to a tribe or tribes and for the agency official to invite them to be consulting parties.

For information on tribal boundaries or tribal interests within the state, please contact the tribe directly or the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program.
