Native Americans

Our work in Indian Country focuses on project development on tribal lands and the management of tribal resources. Through representation of the tribes themselves, or non-Native partners in the construction of infrastructure on tribal lands, we engage tribal leaders and their trustees at the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The goal is to secure for Native Americans and their allies the economic benefits of appropriate development.

We have helped with the licensing of a clean energy generating station on tribal land, the transfer to Indian ownership of a coal mine on its lands, the enhancement of a tribal fishery through removal of antiquated flood control facilities, a tribe’s financing and acquisition of valuable second-growth forest lands, and negotiation of permits for traditional native uses within National Parks.
