Our goal is to provide legal representation, safeguard the fundamental individual rights, and ensure equal access to the protections afforded by the Hualapai Nation Constitution, and the laws of the Hualapai Nation. The Tribal Defenders also provide, on a case-by-case basis, legal representation to tribal/community members in a civil and domestic matter.
