Who We Are

Welcome to the Committee on Native American Concerns. This Committee works with the Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities to harness the vast resources of the ABA to enhance the development of federal Indian law in a manner that supports tribal sovereignty and self-governance and furthers the federal trust responsibility and government-to-government relationship between Indian tribes and the United States. As such, the Committee is focused on trying to educate and inform elected officials and their staff, the federal judiciary and legal professionals on pressing issues of Indian law and policy from Indian gaming and self-governance to welfare and trust reform. For more information on the Committee's work, or to join the Committee, contact the Section office.
