1990 American Indian and Alaska Native Areas
American Indian Reservations and Trust Lands
- American Indian reservations are areas with boundaries established by treaty, statute, and/or executive or court order. Trust lands are real property, held in trust by the Federal Government, that is associated with a specific American Indian reservation or tribe, or, in some cases, individual American Indians.
Tribal Jurisdiction Statistical Areas
- Tribal jurisdiction statistical areas (TJSAs) are delineated by those Federally recognized tribes in Oklahoma that no longer have a reservation.
Tribal Designated Statistical Areas
- Tribal designated statistical areas (TDSAs) are geographic entities delineated by Federally and State-recognized tribes without a land base, that is, with no reservation or trust lands.
Alaska Native Village Statistical Areas
- The census Bureau established Alaska native village statistical areas (ANVSAs) as geographic entities for data tabulation purposes to encompass the settled portion of each Alaska Native village (ANV).
