List of Native American Tribal Entities in Oregon

  Indian land

This is a list of federally recognized Native American tribes in Oregon.

These Indian tribes are recognized by the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs for certain federal government purposes. These tribal governmental agencies and confederations may or may not correspond with individual tribes who historically have lived in Oregon.

Oregon tribes

As of 2008, there were nine federally recognized tribes in Oregon.[1] They are listed here by the names by which the governments call themselves. Their BIA names may be different.

(See Native American tribes in Oregon for the individual tribes and bands.)

Nevada/Oregon tribes

There is one federally recognized tribe who live on the border of Oregon and Nevada:

Oregon/Washington tribes

The Chinook Indian Nation of Oregon and Washington is a group of Chinookan people who were briefly recognized by the U.S. Government in 2001, but this recognition was reversed in 2002.[2]

Unrecognized tribes

There are several other tribes whose petitions for federal recognition have failed for various reasons. One of these groups is the Clatsop-Nehalem Confederated Tribes of Oregon, a group of Clatsop and Tillamook (also known as the Nehalem) who live on the northern Oregon Coast.
