Arizona Tribes & Research Policies

NPTAO has worked with many Native Nations across the state of Arizona to obtain copies of the most up-to-date policies and protocols that control research processes and outline procedures for conducting research. Where possible, they are provided here. In cases where no written policies exist, decision-making power vested with Native Nations to allow research activities within reservation boundaries may be found in a Tribe's constitution, also provided below when possible. To view a Tribe's community profile, current leadership roster, current census-based snapshot, and any available relevant guidelines/policies, click on the Tribe name below or in our interactive map.
