Reservation

Concept of Reservation

Reservation may be defined as: In the U.S., a reservation is an area of land managed by a Native American tribe under the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs. Because of past land allotments (for example, under the Dawes Act of 1887) some reservations are fragmented, with pieces of tribal, individual, and privately held land, some of it owned by non-Indians. The collective geographical area of all reservations is 55.7 million acres, or about 2.3% of the area of the United States.
