The Indian law Resource Center provides legal assistance to indigenous peoples of the Americas to combat racism and oppression, protect their lands and environment, protect their cultures and ways of life, achieve sustainable economic development and genuine self-government, and realize their other human rights.
The Indian Law Resource Center seeks to overcome the grave problems that threaten Native peoples by advancing the rule of law, by establishing national and international legal standards that preserve their human rights and dignity, and by challenging the governments of the world to accord justice and equality before the law to all indigenous peoples of the Americas.
The Indian Law Resource Center is a non-proﬁt law and advocacy organization established and directed by American Indians. We provide legal assistance to Indian and Alaska Native nations working to protect their lands, resources, human rights, environment, and cultural heritage. Our principal goal is the preservation and well-being of Indian and other Native nations and tribes.
Founded in 1978, the Center provides assistance to Indian nations and indigenous peoples in the United States and throughout the Americas. The Center has an international Board of Directors and is a Non-Governmental Organization in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. The Indian Law Resource Center is a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We are funded by grants and contributions from individuals, foundations, and Indian nations.
