This w e bsite is dedicated to asserting and defending the rights of Indian tribes, organizations, and individuals nationwide. NARF is a non-profit organization aimed to provide assistance and legal representation to Indian tribes as they are not properly represented in the legal system. Moreover, NARF was founded in 1970 and is governed by directors composed of thirteen Native Americans all originating from different parts of the country. As each member is specialized regarding Indian matters, this organization “focuses on applying existing laws and treaties to guarantee that national and state governments live up to their legal obligations” (“Native American Rights Fund”). The staff of NARF, generally consisting of Native Americans, applies their understanding of Indian issues to represent Indian tribes and assist their negotiations between other tribes, organizations, and individuals. One of their main focuses is to stand for the laws and treaties that were promised to the Indian nations. NARF address numerous important issues such as the preservation of tribal existence, the upholding of Native American human rights, the protection of tribal natural resources, the accountability of governments to Native Americans, the progression of fair Indian laws, and the attempt to educate the public of Indian laws and issues that all work to support the rights of Native Americans.
