Tribal Government Food, Agriculture, and Natural Resources Directory

Agricultural and Food Law May 01, 2013 Print Friendly and PDF

Native American law is a broad body of federal and tribal laws that deal with the unique relationship between the federal government and the various recognized tribes. Because of this relationship, legal matters facing tribes and tribal members are often addressed through either federal or tribal laws. The Native American Agriculture Reading Room deals with the relevant federal laws, programs, and policies regarding Native Americans. This resource guide is intended to provide users with a comprehensive, though not necessarily exhaustive, compilation of links to various tribal governments’ legal resources that relate to food, agriculture, and land use issues.
