Treaty & Statutory Rights

MILS will provide legal assistance to ensure that rights guaranteed to Native Americans by treaty or statute are secured.

Jay Treaty

Since 1794, Aboriginal Peoples have been guaranteed the right to trade and travel between the United States and Canada, which was then a territory of Great Britain. This right is recognized in Article III of the Jay Treaty, also known as the Treaty of Amity, Commerce and Navigation of 1794 and subsequent laws that stem from the Jay Treaty.
