California Department of Transportation

Native American Activities


Caltrans has many transportation projects within reservations and tribal ancestral areas. There are 11 Federally recognized tribal governments within District 3. The District works with all Tribes on a government-to-government basis. We are currently developing memorandums of understanding with each Tribe to more formally define this relationship and operating procedures.

To see if a Federally recognized tribal government is in your area please refer to this LIST, or MAP. If you have questions regarding Native American activities, please contact:
