Indiana's 10th congressional district was a congressional district for the United States House of Representatives in Indiana. It encompassed roughly the "Old City Limits" of Indianapolis from 1983-2003. The district was re-drawn after the 1980 census and eliminated when Indiana's representation in the House of Representatives fell from 10 to nine after the 2000 Census.

Congresswoman Julia Carson, who formerly represented the 10th, was elected in 2002 to represent to the re-drawn Indiana's 7th congressional district. This district was redrawn to include the old 10th plus some new territory outside of the old boundaries. The old 7th district was absorbed as part of Indiana's 4th congressional district and Indiana's 8th congressional district in 2003.

From 1983-2003, the 10th had just two representatives, Congressman Andrew Jacobs, Jr. and Congresswoman Julia Carson. Carson was the second African-American to represent any part of Indiana in Congress. Katie Hall was the first, having represented the Indiana's 1st congressional district, from 1982-1985
