Tribal Governments

Provided below is a directory of Federally Recognized Tribes in California with tribal and Caltrans District Native American Liaison contact information.  It was created in April 2013. The list may be sorted by Caltrans District, County, Tribe, or other means and provides links to tribal websites where they are available.

Next to some Caltrans district numbers are numbers in parentheses. The parentheses indicate a tribe with interests in more than one district, the number in parentheses designating the additional district of interest. Depending upon the whereabouts of a project or planning concern, it may be necessary to contact the Liaison from the district in parentheses for information.

Because there are over 100 recognized tribes in California and changes occur in their leadership periodically, this directory may not always be up-to-date.  Where there are blank spaces, Caltrans is looking to fill those in. If you see any inaccuracies or places where Caltrans can fill in information, please contact us and we will correct and/or add the information. We appreciate your assistance.
