Reservations

Most of the tribal land base in the United States was set aside by the federal government as Indian Reservations. In California, about half of its reservations are called Rancherias. In New Mexico, most reservations are called Pueblos. In some western states, notably Nevada, there are Native American areas called Indian Colonies.
