Resources at the National Indian Law Library
- Anne Lucke, Director of the National Indian Law Library at the Native American Rights Fund
There are 574 Federally recognized Native American tribes in the United States, all with their own unique governments and laws. Unlike the laws for many jurisdictions in the U.S., however, these laws can be difficult to find, if they are accessible at all. This session will discuss some of the reasons tribal law can be hard to find and the best resources for locating tribal law, including tribal websites, legal publishers, and NILL’s Tribal Law Gateway. The session will conclude with a brief description of some of the other resources available to researchers through the National Indian Law Library.
