There are 573 federally recognized Indian nations in the United States. Approximately 229 of these diverse nations are located in Alaska. The other recognized tribes are located in 35 other states, and there are even more tribes recognized by state governments.
There is one federally recognized Indian nation in Indiana: Pokagon Band of Potawatomi. But Indiana is home to multiple tribes, with the Miami, Delaware and Shawnee being a few.
Over a 15-year period beginning in 1830, all indigenous tribes were forcibly removed from Indiana to territories farther west. After the Potawatomi Trail of Death in 1838, the only natives left in the state were the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi, who gained special permission from the government to remain in the area. In 1846, the Miami were also forcibly removed, but many stayed on land that they owned privately.
