Abstract:
This dataset depicts feature location, selected demographics, and other associated data for American Indian Reservations, off-reservation trust lands, public domain allotments (PDAs), State Designated American Indian Statistical Areas, Recognized State Reservations, and other American Indian owned and/or leased lands located in Florida. This dataset is an update to the FGDL layer: AMINDIANLANDS_2008.
Purpose:
The data are created to serve as base information for use in GIS systems 
for a variety of planning and analytical purposes.
Supplemental_Information:
AMERICAN INDIAN AREA

There are both legal and statistical American Indian entities for which the U.S. 
Census Bureau provides data for Census 2000. The legal entities consist of 
federally recognized American Indian reservations and off-reservation trust land 
areas, the tribal subdivisions that can divide these entities, state recognized 
American Indian reservations. The statistical entities are tribal designated 
statistical areas, and state designated American Indian statistical areas. 

In all cases, these areas are mutually exclusive in that no American Indian home 
land can overlap another tribal entity, except for tribal subdivisions, which 
subdivide some American Indian entities. In some cases where more than one 
tribe claims jurisdiction over an area, the U.S. Census Bureau creates a joint use 
area as a separate entity to define this area of dual claims. The following provides
more detail about each of the various American Indian areas. 

American Indian Reservation

Federal American Indian reservations are areas with boundaries established by 
treaty, statute, and/or executive or court order, and, along with off-reservation 
trust lands, are recognized by the federal government as territory in which 
American Indian tribes have primary governmental authority. The U.S. Census 
Bureau contacts representatives of American Indian tribal governments to identify 
the boundaries for federal reservations.

State reservations are lands held in trust by state governments for the use and 
benefit of a given tribe. A governor-appointed state liaison provides the names 
and boundaries for state reservations. The names of American Indian reservations
recognized by state governments, but not by the federal government, are followed
by (State) in the data presentations.

Federal reservations may cross state boundaries, and federal and state 
reservations may cross county, county subdivision, and place boundaries. For 
reservations that cross state boundaries, only the portions of the reservations in a 
given state are shown in the data products for that state. Lands that are 
administered jointly and/or are claimed by two tribes, whether federally or state 
recognized, are called joint use areas and are treated as if they are separate 
American Indian reservations for decennial census data presentation purposes. 
The entire reservations are shown in data products for the United States. The 
U.S. Census Bureau first provided data for American Indian reservations in the 
1970 census.

American Indian reservations are known as colonies, communities, pueblos, 
rancherias, ranches, reservations, reserves, tribal towns, and tribal villages. Each 
federal American Indian reservation is assigned a four-digit census code ranging 
from 0001 through 4999. These census codes are assigned in alphabetical order 
of American Indian reservation names nationwide, except that joint use areas 
appear at the end of the code range. Each state American Indian reservation is 
assigned a four-digit census code ranging from 9000 through 9499. Each 
American Indian reservation also is assigned a five-digit Federal Information 
Processing Standards (FIPS) code; because FIPS codes are assigned in 
alphabetical sequence within each state, the FIPS code is different in each state 
for reservations that include territory in more than one state.

American Indian Off-Reservation Trust Land

Off-reservation trust lands, along with reservation lands, constitute the territory 
over which American Indian tribes have primary governmental authority. Trust 
land is property associated with a particular American Indian reservation or tribe, 
held in trust by the federal government. Trust land may be held in trust either for 
a tribe (tribal trust land) or for an individual member of a tribe (individual trust land). 
Trust lands recognized in data tabulations are always off-reservation; that is, they 
comprise all tribal and individual trust lands located outside of a reservation 
boundary. Such trust lands may be located in more than one state. Only the 
portions of off-reservation trust lands in a given state are shown in the data 
products for that state; all off-reservation trust lands associated with a reservation 
or tribe are shown in data products for the United States. The U.S. Census Bureau 
first provided trust land data for off-reservation tribal trust lands in the 1980 census; 
in 1990, the trust land data included both tribal and individual trust lands. The U.S. 
Census Bureau does not identify restricted fee land or land in fee simple status as a 
specific geographic category.

In decennial census data tabulations, off-reservation trust lands are assigned a 
four-digit census code and a five-digit Federal Information Processing Standards 
(FIPS) code that is the same as that for the reservation with which they are 
associated. As with reservations, FIPS codes for off-reservation trust lands are 
unique within state, so they will differ if they extend into more than one state. The 
FIPS codes for such off-reservation trust lands are the same as those for the 
associated reservation. In the TIGER/Line products, a letter code-"T" for tribal 
and "I" for individual-identifies off-reservation trust lands. In decennial census data 
tabulations, a trust land flag uniquely identifies off-reservation trust lands. Printed 
reports show separate tabulations for all off-reservation trust land areas, but do not 
provide separate tabulations for the tribal versus individual trust lands. Trust lands 
associated with tribes that do not have a reservation are presented and coded by 
tribal name, interspersed alphabetically among the reservation names.

State Designated American Indian Statistical Area (SDAISA)

State designated American Indian statistical areas (SDAISAs) are statistical entities 
for state recognized American Indian tribes that do not have a state recognized 
land base (reservation). SDAISAs are identified and delineated for the U.S. Census 
Bureau by a state liaison identified by the governor's office in each state. SDAISAs 
generally encompass a compact and contiguous area that contains a concentration 
of individuals who identify with a state recognized American Indian tribe and in which 
there is structured or organized tribal activity. A SDAISA may not be located in more 
than one state unless the tribe is recognized by both states, and it may not include 
area within an American Indian reservation, off-reservation trust land, Alaska Native 
village statistical area, tribal designated statistical area (TDSA), or Oklahoma tribal 
statistical area.

The U.S. Census Bureau established SDAISAs as a new geographic statistical entity 
for Census 2000 to differentiate between state recognized tribes without a land base 
and federally recognized tribes without a land base. For the 1990 census, all such 
tribal entities had been identified as TDSAs.

Each SDAISA is assigned a four-digit census code ranging from 9500 through 9999 
in alphabetical sequence of SDAISA name nationwide. Each SDAISA also is 
assigned a five-digit Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) code in 
alphabetical order within state.

Tribal Designated Statistical Area (TDSA)

Tribal designated statistical areas (TDSAs) are statistical entities identified and 
delineated for the U.S. Census Bureau by federally recognized American Indian tribes 
that do not currently have a federally recognized land base (reservation or 
off-reservation trust land). A TDSA encompasses a compact and contiguous area 
that contains a concentration of individuals who identify with a federally recognized 
American Indian tribe and in which there is structured or organized tribal activity. A 
TDSA may be located in more than one state, and it may not include area within an 
American Indian reservation, off-reservation trust land, Alaska Native village statistical 
area, state designated American Indian statistical area (SDAISA), or Oklahoma tribal 
statistical area.

The U.S. Census Bureau first reported data for TDSAs in conjunction with the 1990 
census, when both federally and state recognized tribes could identify and delineate 
TDSAs. TDSAs now apply only to federally recognized tribes. State recognized tribes 
without a land base, including those that were TDSAs in 1990, are identified as state 
designated American Indian statistical areas (SDAISAs), a new geographic entity for 
Census 2000.

Each TDSA is assigned a four-digit census code ranging from 8000 through 8999 in 
alphabetical sequence of TDSA name nationwide. Each TDSA also is assigned a 
five-digit Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) code in alphabetical order 
within state; because FIPS codes are assigned within each state, the FIPS code is 
different in each state for TDSAs that extend into more than one state.

Miccosukee Indian Information

Tamiami Trail Reservation
The Tamiami Trail Reservation Area, which consists of four parcels of land, is located 
forty miles west of Miami and is presently the site of most Tribal operations. The Tamiami 
Trail Reservation is also the center of the Miccosukee Indian population.

The first parcel is 33.3 acres (5 miles long, 500 feet deep) and is under a 50-year Use 
Permit from the National Park Service, which expires on January 24, 2014. The other 
three parcels of land which are roughly 600' x 65' are on the north side of Tamiami Trail 
(U.S. 41). These small plots of land were originally dedicated to the Miccosukee by the 
State of Florida and have since acquired Federal Reservation Status. These areas are 
used for commercial development, which is prohibited in the National Park Service Use 
Permit Area. Nevertheless, land use is planned with careful foresight, as all lands of the 
Miccosukee require special environmental consideration.

The Tribe also has a perpetual lease from the State of Florida for 189,000 acres, which 
is part of the South Florida Water Management District's Water Conservation Area 3A 
South. The Tribe is allowed to use this land for the purpose of hunting, fishing, frogging, 
subsistence agriculture and to carry on the traditional Miccosukee way of life.

Alligator Alley Reservation
Alligator Alley is the largest of the Tribe's reservations, comprising 74,812.37 acres. It is 
located west of Ft. Lauderdale, lying north and south of State Highway 84 (Alligator Alley). 
This land consists of 20,000 acres of lands with potential for development and 55,000 acres 
of wetlands. The 20,000 acres of lands for development contain a modern Service Station 
Plaza that was built and operated by the Tribe to accommodate those traveling along SR 84; 
a Miccosukee Police Substation and 13,000 acres of land that is leased for cattle grazing. 
The Tribe has also issued temporary Occupancy and Access Permits to non-Indians for the 
purpose of maintaining their hunting camps on 15,000 acres of Tribal wetlands. Plans are 
currently underway for additional commercial and agricultural development as well as 
community facilities and home sites.

Krome Avenue Reservation
There are two reservations located at the intersection of Krome Avenue and Tamiami Trail. 
The first reservation area is comprised of 25 acres located on the northwest corner of the 
intersection and is the site of the 56,000 square foot, state-of-the-art Miccosukee Indian 
Gaming Facility and the new Miccosukee Resort & Convention Center. The second 
reservation area is .92 acres located on the southwest corner of the intersection and is the 
site of the Miccosukee Tobacco Shop.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Poarch Band of Creek Indians

The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is the only federally recognized Indian Tribe in the state 
of Alabama, operating as a sovereign nation with its own system of government and bylaws. 
The Tribe operates a variety of economic enterprises, which employ hundreds of area 
residents. Poarch Creek Indian Gaming manages three gaming facilities in Alabama, including: 
the Creek Entertainment Center in Atmore; Riverside Entertainment Center in Wetumpka; and, 
Tallapoosa Entertainment Center in Montgomery. The Poarch Band of Creek Indians is an 
active partner in the state of Alabama, contributing to economic, educational, social and 
cultural projects benefiting both tribal members and residents of these local communities and 
neighboring towns.

INDRES.shp The BIA, in conjunction with the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, assisted in the development of the Map Overlay and Statistical System (MOSS), an early public domain GIS. This development effort resulted in the completion in 1983 of the Forest Management Plan for the Hoopa Indian Reservation. The decision to initiate a national GIS program within the BIA was made that same year and a large scale database development effort was initiated. MOSS was used as the GIS and the Analytical Mapping System (AMS) was used for data entry. The database limitations of MOSS soon became evident. Except for a very limited flat file database capability, MOSS was limited to one attribute with no more than 16 characters. This made it very cumbersome to perform even modestly sophisticated data queries required for many management models. The data structure itself led to major processing difficulties in basic GIS functions such as buffering and overlays. Large numbers of slivers were a fact of life. In 1988, the decision was made to convert GIS operations within BIA to ARC/INFO. Consequently, this necessitated the conversion of approximately 25,000 MOSS data files to the ARC/INFO format. BIA data were placed in individual databases by reservation. This allowed the direct conversion of MOSS databases to ARC/INFO libraries in a systematic manner. Currently, there are approximately 210 libraries actively maintained on the GDSC system, each representing one reservation. Reservations range in size from Navajo (approximately 16 million acres) to rancherias in California which are less than 5 acres. This dataset does not include statistical entities such as Tribal Jurisdictional Statistical Areas (TJSA), Tribal Designated Statistical Areas (TDSA) and Alaska Native Villages Statistical Areas.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The GeoPlan Center created this layer from a 
conglomeration of 6 different dataset sources.

The six datasets that were used to create this layer are;
 - Indres.shp
 - Amindian.shp
 - Parcels (2006)
 - PLSS.shp
 - WMDL_aug07.shp
 - Fedlandp.shp

The existing features from which the layer's spatial information 
was derived is marked in the SOURCE field of the layer's attribute table.

Using the following existing layers; Indres.shp, Amindian.shp, and Fedlandp.shp. 
Parcels which fell inside or near these features were examined to determine the 
boundaries of the specific properties (i.e. reservation lands, trust lands, other 
owned lands, etc.) within the layer.

Selections were also performed on the Parcels ONAME, ADDR1, and ADDR2 
fields in order to extract other American Indian owned properties.

Where Parcels are unavailable (i.e. Everglades National Park, etc.) the PLSS.shp
Layer was used in conjunction with the Indres.shp, Amindian.shp, and 
Fedlandp.shp layers to determine boundaries for properties 
(i.e. reservation lands, trust lands, other owned lands, etc.)
occurring in those areas.

Additionally the Miccosukee Indians Tribe also has a perpetual lease from the 
State of Florida for 189,000 acres, which is part of the South Florida Water 
Management District's Water Conservation Area 3A South. The Tribe is allowed to 
use this land for the purpose of hunting, fishing, frogging, subsistence agriculture 
and to carry on the traditional Miccosukee way of life.  This area's boundary was 
determined spatially from a .PDF map on the Miccosukee Indians website used in 
conjunction with the statewide water management district lands layer 
WMDL_aug07.shp

In order to create a more uniform boundary layer the feature sources (parcels, plss, 
and wmdl) were merged to create a statewide layer which was then dissolved 
based on Tribe, Land Name, and feature source.

Next additional descriptive fields were added along with the field information from 
the following existing layers; Indres.shp and Amindian.shp

Next GeoPlan compared the existing AMINDIANLANDS_2008 dataset with the 
cb_2016_us_aiannh_500k dataset and made updates where appropriate.

Next GeoPlan performed attribute queries on the 2015 Statewide Florida Parcel 
dataset to determine where additional updates needed to occur.

In total 66 new features were added.

Next GeoPlan added and populated the following fields

Resource_Description: DOWNLOADABLE DATA
Distribution_Liability:
The Florida Geographic Data Library is a collection of Geospatial Data
compiled by the University of Florida GeoPlan Center with support from
the Florida Department of Transportation. GIS data available in FGDL is
collected from various state, federal, and other agencies (data sources)
who are data stewards, producers, or publishers. The data available in
FGDL may not be the most current version of the data offered by the
data source. University of Florida GeoPlan Center makes no guarantees
about the currentness of the data and suggests that data users check
with the data source to see if more recent versions of the data exist.

Furthermore, the GIS data available in the FGDL are provided 'as is'.
The University of Florida GeoPlan Center makes no warranties, guaranties
or representations as to the truth, accuracy or completeness of the data
provided by the data sources. The University of Florida GeoPlan Center
makes no representations or warranties about the quality or suitability
of the materials, either expressly or implied, including but not limited
to any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular
purpose, or non-infringement. The University of Florida GeoPlan Center
shall not be liable for any damages suffered as a result of using,
modifying, contributing or distributing the materials.

A note about data scale: 

Scale is an important factor in data usage.  Certain scale datasets
are not suitable for some project, analysis, or modeling purposes.
Please be sure you are using the best available data. 

1:24000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the
county level.
1:24000 data should NOT be used for high accuracy base mapping such
as property parcel boundaries.
1:100000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the
multi-county or regional level.
1:125000 scale datasets are recommended for projects that are at the
regional or state level or larger.

Vector datasets with no defined scale or accuracy should be
considered suspect. Make sure you are familiar with your data
before using it for projects or analysis. Every effort has been
made to supply the user with data documentation. For additional
information, see the References section and the Data Source Contact
section of this documentation. For more information regarding
scale and accuracy, see our webpage at:
