For centuries, the federal government imposed itself as the trustee for tribal lands and resources. This responsibility obligates the U.S. to ensure that tribes receive just compensation for the use of those resources. Under the current policy of tribal self-determination, the U.S. Congress has allowed tribes more control over their resources. However, this does not address the past serious errors administering tribal and Indian trust matters. We represent tribes in holding the federal government accountable for its years of mismanagement. Such cases can take decades to resolve.
