Hobbs Straus litigated a case establishing the right of a tribal organization to contract under Public Law 93-638 in a service area that was not a "reservation" in Rapid City Indian Health Board v. IHS, IBIA No. 97-100-A.

A Matter of Principle

Hobbs Straus was founded to represent and advance the interests of Indian and Alaska Native tribes and their people. Our firm will not represent those who work against those interests, and we will not represent a non-Indian organization that is attempting to profit at the expense of Indians. These guiding principles continue to inform our relationships and decisions.

Hobbs Straus takes its commitment to Indian Country seriously and we understand that our words must be matched by actions. We show our commitment by performing a significant amount of pro bono work for various tribes and Indian organizations including the National Museum of the American Indian, National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), Americans for Indian Opportunity (AIO), and the Native American Rights Fund (NARF)/NCAI Supreme Court Project. We also contribute financially to a number of worthy causes in Indian Country by sponsoring tribal powwows, donating to tribal fund raisers and providing funds for tribal scholarships. We are especially pleased to be donors to the NCAI Embassy of Tribal Nations, which has embarked on a campaign to erect a building in Washington, D.C. to promote greater visibility and awareness of tribal governments on a national level. The new embassy will establish a permanent home for the NCAI in our Nation’s capital and will serve to promote a unified voice for tribal organizations.
