BIA Tribal Boundaries
The entire North Coast region is unceded Tribal land that Indigenous Peoples have been tending since time immemorial.
North Coast Tribes are separate and independent sovereign nations within the territorial boundaries of the United States. Thirty-four North Coast Tribal Nations are represented in the North Coast. North Coast Tribes are represented in the NCRP by Tribal Representatives elected by the Tribes within the North, Central and Southern Districts through the NCRP Tribal Nomination and Voting Process. There are 34 Tribes in the region who are eligible to vote for the Tribal Representatives and are nominated by the Tribal Councils of North Coast Tribes to fill the three Leadership Council and three Technical Peer Review Committee positions, and their alternates.
Tribal lands totaling more than 250,000 acres are distributed throughout the North Coast. The map below shows current-day Tribally owned land as identified by the US Department of the Interior Bureau of Indian Affairs.
