Why do treaties matter?

Treaties are living documents that are still important for both Native and non-Native people and nations today. Explore the treaty signing process, the types of rights that treaties affirm, and why treaties are still relevant now.

What do Tribal governments do?

No two Tribal governments are the same. Discover how Tribal governments are structured and the ways in which they serve both Native and non-Native people.
