Congressional Native American Caucus
The Congressional Native American Caucus is a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers that work to advance our nation-to-nation relationships with tribal governments and uphold our federal trust responsibilities to Native Americans through the legislative process. The Caucus works on a bipartisan basis to meet our nation’s moral and legal commitments to American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians across a broad range of policy areas, including but not limited to health, safety, housing, education, economic development, and cultural preservation. As outlined in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, the caucus works to protect tribal sovereignty.
Members work to maintain close relationships with tribal nations and their representatives, and amplify the voices of Native Americans in policy debates across all issues. Members are connected with experts and leaders within Indian Country such as the National Congress of American Indians for information on legislative proposals that impact Native American tribes.
