There are three different kinds of political unions between different American Indian tribes.
1) Federations, where each tribe has (or had) its own leadership, but those leaders all answer to a greater federal government. The United States is such a federation. So is the Iroquois Confederacy. These federations belong in this category.
2) Intertribal organizations, where different politically distinct tribes convene to make treaties, deal with other nations, or achieve another goal. The United Nations is such an organization. So is the Assembly of First Nations. Please submit those organizations to Society/Ethnicity/Indigenous_People/Native_Americans/Organizations/Intertribal, even if they have "Federation" as part of their name.
3) Groups from originally distinct tribes who have banded together into a new nation with a single government. There are multiple ethnicities in France, but they all share the same country and government. Similarly, the Alabama-Coushatta, though they have two ethnicities, share a reservation and a single tribal government. Please submit these nations to Society/Ethnicity/Indigenous_People/Native_Americans/Tribes_Nations_and_Bands, even if they have "Federation" as part of their name.
