NARF has been essential in developing a robust body of federal law related to tribal issues. It includes laws that address tribal sovereignty, tribal land and natural resources, Native human and civil rights, and the accountability of governments to Native people. Part of that work is to educate officials, judges, attorneys, and the public about Native American issues and rights.
