Tribal Nations Report
This publication is intended as a brief introduction to the tribal nations in Montana. We have organized the material by reservations even though, in some cases, more than one tribe is located on a reservation. It includes a section on Montana “Landless” Indians, the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa, as well as a section on “urban” Indians, those who do not currently reside on a reservation. Some Montana Indians reside on reservations other than their own.
Office of Indian Affairs
The Office of Indian Affairs was established in 1951 by the Montana legislature to facilitate effective tribal-state communications with special attention to the discussion and resolution of issues that Indian peoples face regarding their unique political status and as full citizens of the state of Montana. The Office of Indian Affairs serves as a liaison between the state and the Tribes and promotes economic development, environmental protection, education, support for social services, and enduring good will.
