Overview

The Dakota Access Pipeline Project has focused national and international attention on the role of American Indian tribes in energy infrastructure projects. This presentation, led by attorney Troy Eid, addresses the increasingly influential role that Native American and Alaska Native tribes and nations play in energy and natural resource development projects, including pipelines and transmission lines, located outside the borders of tribes' reservation homelands.  

Because many tribes are actively engaged in their own energy development, the presentation also explores legal and business considerations that arise when doing business on-reservation, including tribes' civil jurisdiction to regulate and adjudicate matters involving non-Indian companies and individuals.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify how many tribes are actively engaged in their own energy development

  2. Understand the legal and business considerations that arise when doing business on-reservation

  3. Recognize tribes' civil jurisdiction to regulate and adjudicate matters involving non-Indian companies and individuals
