Indigenous Law Portal

In 2014, the Library of Congress launched the Indigenous Law Portal, an open-access platform with digital resources about how indigenous peoples of the Americas govern themselves. A new classification schedule is being written, the Law of the Indigenous Peoples in the Americas (Class KIA-KIX), organizing resources by country and region, legal area, and tribal entity. The classification guides the structure of the online Portal, which includes Canada, the United States, and Mexico to date. Work on Central America is ongoing.
