Welcome to the Federal Bar Association’s Indian Law Section.  We have an exciting year ahead, starting with our Fall Conference, held in Washington D.C. on October 25th.  This conference will examine pressing issues in Indian country, including reservation boundaries, tribal and federal election law, and keeping tribal communities safe.  This spring, we will host our flagship conference at the beautiful Sandia Pueblo Resort in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on April 6-7.  Plans are still in process for the program for this conference and, as always, we welcome your input.  We are also excited that The Federal Lawyer will be publishing a column focused on federal Indian law issues a few times a year, and the Section recently welcomed its first Publications Coordinator, Leah Jurss of Hogen Adams, who will be coordinating the column, among other duties. Please reach out to us if you have ideas for our conferences, the column, or other activities you would like to see the Section engage in.
