California Indian Tribes - Native American Tribal Councils

California Indian Tribes on this list are not the only tribes in existence in California. Many tribes were forced off lands they owned during the 19th and 20th centuries. Losing land equated with losing birthright. Their very existence and heritage were all be denied because of government regulations requiring they live on and own tribal land. Tribes generally are not eager to recognize even bands of their own Indians because this would mean sharing the wealth of revenues from casino interests.  Thus, it becomes clear just how important it is to be recognized as a tribe.


In California, the gaming casinos are only permitted to Indian tribes and can be built on their lands. In some regions, the growth of casinos and gaming has impacted revenue of Nevada cities across the California border. If you seek to learn about California Indian tribes, cities throughout California maintain historical museums with collections of artifacts, books, guided tours and in some locations such as Roseville's Maidu Interpretive Center, you can take courses from Indian descendants and learn animal tracking and other skills.

Note: due to the phone numbers changing, we removed phone number listings. If you represent a tribe and would like your number and other information included, please contact us.
