In true Hein fashion, we are constantly increasing the value of your subscription by adding new content each month. In the last 12 months alone, we’ve added nearly 800,000 pages from more than 700 new titles to the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas: History, Culture & Law database. This month, we are pleased to announce that we’ve added two important publications from the Native Nations Law & Policy Center.

What’s New

With our latest content release, we have added the following two publications:

The Need for Confidentiality within Tribal Cultural Resource Protection

This article discusses the importance of tribal information and resources that indigenous people seek to protect, specifically to safeguard cultural resources. It includes protection strategies, such as the use of confidential databases, and potential legislative and administrative fixes which should allow a tribe to provide consent prior to any information being shared.

Tribal Implementation Toolkit

This information toolkit addresses how to reinforce national implementation of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and how to use it for tribal governance. In addition, it provides background information on the Declaration and examples of lawmaking inspired by it.

We’d like to extend a big thank you to the Nation Nations Law & Policy Center, specifically their Director, Angela R. Riley, Professor of Law & American Indian Studies, for granting us permission to add these essential documents to our ever-growing collection.
