The firm vigorously supports our clients in their efforts to protect culturally significant lands, resources, and cultural practices from harm. We offer legal, practical, and strategic tools to ensure that Native American tribes and nations can exercise their sovereign rights to protect ancestral rivers and streams, lakes, fisheries, forests, gathering areas, sacred places, historic sites, and other culturally significant spaces. This includes assisting tribes and nations in cultural repatriation, preventing harm to Native culture and resources from non-Indian development projects such as coal mines and hydroelectric projects, and defending Native American ceremonial and religious practices in prisons.
