About Alaska Tribes
This resource is a project of Alaska Legal Services Corporation (ALSC) to provide Alaska’s Native Tribes with resources and information regarding tribal courts and participation in state court ICWA proceedings.
2022 Alaska Tribal Court Directory is here!
ALSC has published its 2022 version of the Alaska Tribal Court Directory. For the first time, it includes information on all 229 federally registered Tribes in Alaska. It is a tool for advocates to better access and use the justice systems Tribes have been operating in Alaska for thousands of years.
Alaska Legal Services Corporation is a non-profit law firm that assists clients who are facing critical civil legal issues ranging from consumer law, family law, housing problems, public benefits, healthcare, Alaska Native law, and other areas specific to veterans or the elderly.
