Within Washington State are 36 Indian tribes (28 federally recognized), 2.6 million acres of tribal land, and over 100,000 Native American residents, so many Washington lawyers encounter Indian law in their practices. Disputes concerning Indians, tribes, or Indian trust lands often involve complex jurisdictional issues and a combination of federal, tribal, or state law.
