The Center provides legal assistance to Indian nations and other indigenous peoples in the United States and throughout the Americas. All of our work is done at no cost to our clients.
Indian nations and tribes and other indigenous communities throughout the world are afflicted by poverty, poor health and discrimination. Many Native communities are subjected to grave human rights abuses. Indian land and natural resources are often expropriated or degraded. When indigenous peoples are deprived of their ways of life and their ties to the earth, they suffer. Many have disappeared completely. Profoundly aware that when any culture ceases to exist, the whole world is diminished irrevocably, the Indian Law Resource Center’s principal goal is the preservation and well-being of Indian and other Native nations and tribes.
