Indian Law and Order Commission Report Presentation at BIA Providers Conference December 4, 2013
Last month the bipartisan Indian Law and Order Commission (ILOC) released its final report and recommendations to the President and Congress of the United States. This report makes a number of important recommendations for reforming justice in Alaska. Most of those recommendations involve acknowledging the role and responsibility of Alaska’s 229 federally recognized tribes. The report draws critical links between the way tribes are currently treated under the law in Alaska and the epidemic rates of violence, substance abuse and suicides in the villages. As NARF stated in its prior release on this same report, “Every Alaskan needs to read this report.”
Tomorrow – December 4, 2013 – four members of the ILOC will be in Anchorage to present their findings and recommendations on Alaska at the BIA Providers Conference. They will present beginning at 8:30 am at the Dena’ina Center. They are part of the Tribal Government track, which is in the Tikahtnu B room on the 3rd floor.
The full ILOC report can be downloaded for free at https://www.indianlawandordercommission.com/report/. A limited number of paper copies will be available at the conference.
