Projects and Services
The Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI) offers a wide range of exceptional training, technical assistance, and resource services. We strive to facilitate the sharing of resources so Native Nations and tribal justice systems have access to cost effective resources which can be adapted to meet the individual needs of their communities. Our mission is to enhance and strengthen tribal sovereignty and justice while honoring community values, protecting rights, and promoting well-being. Our vision is to empower Native communities to create and control their own institutions for the benefit/welfare of all community members now and for future generations
TLPI offers extensive free training and technical assistance with funding provided by the various bureaus of the U.S. Department of Justice, the Children's Bureau (in the Department of Health and Human Services), and other funding sources.
