Native American Rights Fund, Boulder, CO.
In 1981 the Native American Rights Fund (NARF) continued its program of providing legal representation to Indian tribes and groups in cases of major significance to Indian people throughout the country. Many significant Indian rights victories were achieved in 1981 in the areas of tribal existence, Indian natural resources protection, human rights and government accountability, and Indian education. After a detailed description of NARF, major activities during 1981 are presented in five sections: preserving tribal existence (25 cases); protecting tribal resources (36 cases); promoting human rights, which includes Indian education (19 cases); holding all levels of government accountable to Native Americans (10 cases); and furthering the development of Indian law (17 activities). The treasurer's report concludes the report. (ERB)
