The Bureau of Indian Affairs website is replete with useful information for those within the Native American community and those who might wish to learn more about such communities. A great overview of Native American land rights, tribal government, language, and the various Indian Bureaus can be found in the FAQs tab near the top of the page. The interactive "Services Overview" section near the bottom of the homepage, allows visitors to discover more about the services provided by Indian Affairs. Just click on a heading to read the description, or roll over the headings to scroll through all the categories. Some of the categories of services include "Federal Acknowledgement", "Genealogy", "Self-Determination", "Self-Governance", and "Real Estate". The "Knowledge Base" tab near the top of the page has a multitude of topics to choose from, including a "Tribal Directory" that lists the federally-recognized tribes in each state, and includes the link to their website, if they have one.
