Land held by the United States for the use and benefit of American Indian tribes. Virtually all trust land is located in reservations. Tribes also have the ability to purchase land and to petition the federal government to hold it in trust, protecting the land from encroachment or seizure. Actions affecting title to trust lands, including sales, are subject to approval of the U.S. Secretary of Interior.
