The Project was created as a cooperative effort between the University of Oklahoma College of Law Library and the National Indian Law Library (NILL), to provide access to the tribal constitutions, codes, and other legal documents. Project Coordinators were David Selden (NILL) and Marilyn Nicely (OU).
The Project began in 1996. The developing technology of the World Wide Web offered a new opportunity to share information. The University of Oklahoma College of Law Library partnered with the National Indian Law Library to acquire and digitize these materials at a time when tribal documents were very difficult to find. The Project was created as a public service. Tribal documents were shared with permission from the National Indian Law Library or donated directly by tribal members. Other materials included are federal government documents in the public domain or publications shared with the permission of their creators.
DISCLAIMER: The on-line versions of tribal
codes, constitutions, and legal information which appear here are
provided for your convenience for scholarship and informational
purposes only. The official versions of any tribal code or
constitution may be obtained by contacting the tribe directly or by
contacting the National Indian Law Library:
Other publications or documents are likewise made
available for scholarship and informational purposes only.
Source documents must still be used for authority.
