>**This message is being cross-posted to the Turtle Island and Triballaw
>The Tribal Environmental Law Project (TELP) has recently added to its web
>pages "A Model Tribal Environmental Review Code."  This document, authored by
>attorney Dean B. Suagee, offers Indian tribes a template code for establishing
>a comprehensive environmental review process for development proposals that
>could affect the environment of Indian country. 
>The template is modeled after the federal National Environmental Policy Act
>(NEPA), which requires federal agencies to prepare an environmental impact
>statement (EIS) prior to taking any "major Federal action significantly
>affecting the quality of the human environment." The template should be of
>interest to any tribal government wishing to exercise its inherent sovereignty
>to protect the quality of the reservation environment and the health of
>reservation residents. 
>The author has granted permission for tribal governments to use the model code
>as it stands or as modified to fit the particular needs of the tribe.  
>You may view (and download) the model code at the TELP home page (click on the
