November is National American Indian Heritage Month

Since 1990, with the passage of P.L. 101-343, the U.S. has celebrated the contributions of Native Americans during the entire month of November.  The Law Library of Congress has published a blog post with links to related federal laws and information.  The D’Angelo Law Library also has several useful databases.  The  American Indian Law Collection (via HeinOnline) includes tribal constitutions, acts, by-laws, decisions, reports, treaties, and journal articles.  It also links to external resources such as the National Indian Law Library and its Tribal Law Gateway, Native American Rights Fund cases, and tribal law (PDF) and Federal Indian Law  (PDF) research guides.  The Law Library also provides access to the LexisNexis Native American Law Library and the LLMC Digital Native American Collection (click on “Multi-Jurisdiction Subject Collections”).
