It's January and that means time for another list of federally recognized tribes.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is required by law to publish a list of recognized tribes "annually on or before every January 30." And for the past four years, the agency has managed to do just that after faltering for much of the 2000s.

"The listed Indian entities are acknowledged to have the immunities and privileges available to federally recognized Indian tribes by virtue of their government-to-government relationship with the United States as well as the responsibilities, powers, limitations, and obligations of such tribes," a notice that was published in the Federal Register on Tuesday reads.

There aren't any new members on the 2017 list. It still contains 567 tribes -- the same number as the last update from May 2016, when the Pamunkey Tribe of Virginia was added.

The notice was signed by Larry Roberts, a citizen of the Oneida Nation who has served as the leader of the BIA since January 2016. As a political appointee, he is expected to depart the post when the Obama administration ends on Friday.

Federal Register Notice:
Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible To Receive Services From the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs (January 17, 2017)
