Federally Recognized Tribes

 

 

Federally Recognized Tribes Associated With Arkansas

In accordance with the Section 106 implementing regulations promulgated by the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (36 CFR Part 800), federal agencies are required to consult on undertakings with the potential to affect historic properties of cultural and religious significance to a tribe or tribes. Tribal consultation is an essential component of identifying historic properties within an area of potential effects (APE). Initiate consultation early in the project planning process.

For additional information regarding tribal consultation on federal undertakings in Arkansas, please contact the tribe directly or the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program.

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