After hearing countless stories from many different Tribal groups who have been stuck in the Federal Application Process for years, American Ancestors decided to find out why so many Tribes were still waiting to be Federally Recognized.
What American Ancestors found were countless Tribal Groups who’ve been taken advantage of by those who do not know the process, Groups who’ve been strung along in hopes of project completion or those who are simply overwhelmed by the Federal Application Process. American Ancestors decided it was time to get involved.
This website and the services provided are how American Ancestors can support a Tribe in fulfilling the 7 Criteria for the Federal Application process and help a Tribe attain their goal of Federal Recognition.
