Promote Native American Human Rights

American Indian and Alaska Native individuals, like all people, are entitled to inalienable, fundamental human rights. In addition, tribes have fundamental collective human rights. NARF concentrates on enforcing laws regarding rights to equal protection and to be free from discrimination in voting, education, incarceration, and religion. NARF also helps develop laws that provide unique protections for Native collective rights, traditions, culture, and property such as sacred places, peyote, eagle feathers, burial remains, and funerary objects. NARF’s human rights work includes international forums like the United Nations and the Organization of American States.
