Google employee DMabasa wrote the following response to a question posted in the Google Maps help forum:
Thanks for voicing your concern. We are aware of this issue and working hard to get it fixed as soon as possible!
Apparently by as soon as possible he means immediately because take a look:
It appears to be fairly thorough but a quick search did prove that at least one reservation is missing (sorry Three Affiliated Tribes, apparently Google doesn't like you).
I am happy that Google returned to the status quo of marking Indian reservations but the names are still missing. What's the point of identifying something if you don't also label it!
If Bing Maps can label Indian Reservations then so can you Google!
