Welcome to askNILL

The National Indian Law Library (NILL) provides Indian law-related research assistance and documents to the public via the askNILL service. Questions can be submitted at any time and responses are generally made within 3 business days.

You also can check our online research guides to help with your research. Our staff specializes in researching Indian Law. We cannot research Native American family history or how to find a lawyer. We have made research guides on both of these topics, but cannot provide further assistance on these topics. Please visit the research guides: Tracing Native American Family Roots and Finding Legal Help.

An email address is required to submit this form. If you do not have an email address, please call us during business hours at 303-447-8760.
