There are 22 federally recognized Tribes in Arizona. Most of these tribes have a Tribal Education Department (TED), a Tribal Education Director, or someone from their Tribal leadership assigned to education if the Tribe is smaller. Some tribes solely contain schools operated by the Bureau of Indian Education. Below you will find general information for each Tribe and resources specific to each Tribe and community if available.
Enrolling with your Tribe is an important process to receive broader access to the programs and benefits offered to enrolled Tribal Members. Each Tribe has its own processes for tribal enrollment to determine whether an individual is eligible for membership. Each tribe maintains its own enrollment records and records about past members. The U.S. Department of Interior has general information on the Tribal Enrollment process, however, to obtain information about your eligibility for membership, you must contact the Tribe.
