The CIPR provides technical assistance and consultation directly to Indigenous communities seeking to
formalize and operationalize their governance structures. Indigenous communities engage in nation-building
efforts for a variety of needs ranging from preserving their culture, to pursuing economic development
opportunities for the tribe.
Nation building needs may include:
Researching and drafting tribal constitutions
Researching and drafting tribal codes
Drafting 25 C.F.R. § 83 petitions for federal acknowledgement
If your community is interested in nation-building support, please complete the Inquiry Form below and someone from our team will follow-up with you.
