Native American Lands Work Group

The purpose and scope of work of this work group is to:


  1. Keep ALTA and its members apprised of new developments in the Native American Lands area through ALTA publications and other educational opportunities.

  2. Monitor Native American Lands legislation, regulation, case law, and ongoing litigation to determine its general impact on title insurance and conveyancing and to assist ALTA in developing official positions regarding Native American Lands.

  3. Recommend to the Board of Governors participation of ALTA as amicus curiae in Native American Lands litigation involving issues which might have significant broad effect on the interests of the title insurance and conveyancing industries.

  4. Develop standardized products suited to transactions involving Native American tribes and property.

  5. Establish liaison with Native American tribal and inter-tribal organizations to seek opportunities to work together to improve transactions.
