There are lots of places to find this kind of data. There is the somewhat user-unfriendly US Census data. There are maps and other goodies spread over dozens of different areas on the website and in a zillion different formats.

Some of the easier to use are:

AIANNHA overlay:

https://tigerweb.geo.census.gov/arcg...NNHA/MapServer

Click the View In: 'ArcGIS Online map viewer' link. Then zoom in on your area of interest.

Tribal Census Tracts:

https://tigerweb.geo.census.gov/arcg...acts/MapServer

Click the View In: 'ArcGIS Online map viewer' link. Then zoom in on your area of interest.

There are also PDF's of the 2010 Census - Tribal Tract Reference Maps. But they are stunningly difficult to access. I've never had the links work and have had to wade through rather painful ranks of directories, hoping to find the most current data.

There is the USGS website fro the National Mapping program:

https://nationalmap.gov

Also not the most direct route to a map. But a very good one. Indeed, it's the source of those maps that you found helpful.

But, its' all so much easier than the old days digging in government record depositories, just to find the right thing to order. I still have blueprint tubes full of old topo maps from the USGS. Now, I can get all this with a search engine. But you do miss the serendipitous finds in the next folder over or the next decimal place up or down in the DDC or LC number.
Thank you so much. This helps so much. I'm saving all this info. It will definitely help in my searches. You rock. This will help me continue in my search. Thanks a billion.
