Most tribes understand how important the enactment of their own laws and regulations is: not only does it provide a framework for dispute resolution and enforcement that is unique to a tribe’s culture and practice, but it is also an exercise of self-governance and self-determination.  In the employment context, the COVID-19 crisis has only highlighted the importance of tribal laws and regulations governing paid leave, medical testing, and medical exemption policies.

Indigenous peoples in America have been fighting for our existence since before colonization.  Since colonization we have continued to fight for the many things that are important to our existence: our sacred sites, our missing and murdered sisters, our environment, and our sovereignty.  Many Americans are ignorant of these issues and some of them do not even realize that Native Americans still exist.  Yet, we continue to exist and thrive in many different ways.  We are leaders of our respective sovereign nations, political leaders at all levels of government, lawyers, activists, business owners, mothers, fathers, and friends.  Regardless of the role we play, and for better or worse, we are an integral part of America.
