Nation Building

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.
