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.
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.
