The Native Amicus Briefing Project is a project of the Yale Group for the Study of Native America that is dedicated to fostering a greater understanding of federal Indian law in the federal courts as well as in the legal community at large.

The purpose of the Project is to identify and to track court cases of particular interest to Indian Country.  In select proceedings, the Project submits amicus briefs to raise awareness and understanding of American Indian law and policy.

Through this effort, the Project aims to articulate complex issues of tribal culture, religion, and governance, in order to strengthen the relationship between the federal courts and the more than 560 federally recognized tribal nations within the United States.
