Focus of this Guide
The focus of this guide is to provide a broad overview of resources available to researchers of Federal Indian, tribal, and indigenous peoples law issues. Tribal law is notably distinct from federal Indian law. Federal Indian law concerns the relationship between federal, state, and tribal governments, while tribal law is the law tribes develop and apply to their members and territories.
Because many of the resources available to research Federal Indian law are similar to the resources used to research other areas of the law, less emphasis is placed on Federal Indian Law research.
While some detail is provided, users of the guide should remember that this guide is introductory in nature and focuses primarily on more widely available electronic resources and resources available at the University of Oklahoma Donald E. Pray Law Library.
