The purpose of this project was to create a create a “reading room” on Native American Agricultural and Food law and policy issues that provide users with a resource that brought all of the existing resources currently available together into one location. The reading room covers a variety of topics such as leasing issues related to Native American land, government food programs, enforcement of environmental rules and regulations on tribal lands, historic and cultural preservation, and numerous other topics.
Besides the reading room, the grant also called for the creation of a list of technical resource providers who are essentially the contact points within each of the tribes that deal with issues that arise under their purview. This guidance document is broken down by tribe and contains a hyperlink to the materials and organizations within the tribe that pertain to agricultural and food law topics.
