Native American Rights Fund

Boulder, CO; Anchorage, AK; Washington, DC

The Native American Rights Fund is the oldest and largest non-profit law firm dedicated to asserting and defending the rights of Indian tribes, organizations and individuals nationwide. Its practice is concentrated in five key areas: the preservation of tribal existence; the protection of tribal natural resources; the promotion of Native American human rights; the accountability of governments to Native Americans; and the development of Indian law and educating the public about Indian rights, laws, and issues. Its mission is to bring excellent, highly ethical, legal representation to tribes that will ensure their survival and their way of life. In addition to the legal services it provides, NARF is engaged in a project called the Indigenous Peacemaking Initiative, which is designed to promote and support Native American peoples in restoring sustainable peacemaking practices.

It will accomplish this through:

  • Promoting Traditional Peacemaking Practices;
  • Coordinating a Traditional Peacemaking Practices Clearinghouse;
  • Convening Traditional Peacemaking Meetings;
  • Offering Training and Teaching Opportunities that:
    • Document and disseminate best practices;
    • Develop curriculum, case studies and tools;
    • Provide training on various components and techniques of peacemaking;
  • Supporting Mentoring and Nurturing.
