Native American Issues

OFW Law has a long history in “Indian Country.” We worked on several of the trust settlements for land flooded by the Missouri River dams; we represented Mrs. Keepseagle in her class action against USDA; and are now working with South Dakota State University on the “New Beginnings” program. This is a new USDA program matching funds (up to $500,000 per state) devoted to American Indian higher education at land grant institutions, both universities and colleges. We have a unique expertise and are able to help Universities navigate this new grant program focused on American Indian higher education.
