Tribal Law Gateway

The library improves access to hard-to-find tribal law documents through its improved Tribal Law Gateway: The National Indian Law Library's Tribal Law Gateway has a new look. Re-designed -- as an improved portal to the laws of the federally-recognized tribes, Alaska Native villages, and pueblos in the United States -- this area of our web site now brings together all of our research tips and tools in one place. Access has been improved to the hundreds of copies of codes, constitutions and other tribal law documents held by the library and found elsewhere.

From one web page, library researchers can access our:

  • research tips and guides,
  • A-Z directory for finding tribal laws and web sites,
  • print and online collections,
  • and more.

For tribal leaders, we have developed an informational web page about the library's efforts to collect tribal codes, constitutions, and compacts.

To use the Tribal Law Gateway today, go to http://www.narf.org/nill/triballaw/index.htm, or click on "Tribal Law Gateway" from our home page.
