Welcome to the Vermont Commission on Native American Affairs

The Commission provides technical assistance on the application process for state recognition of Native American Indian tribes and reviews the documentation of applicants. The Commission develops policies and programs to benefit Vermont's Native American Indian population.

Four Vermont tribes are currently recognized by the State of Vermont.
