Indian Law

American Indian law refers primarily to federal law and encompasses the treaties, statutes, executive orders, court decisions, and administrative actions which define the status of the Indian tribes and their relationship to the federal government.  This guide also includes materials on tribal law, the body of law that each tribe applies to its own internal affairs.  Tribal law sources include constitutions, tribal codes, and tribal court decisions. This guide also includes a section on international indigenous law.
