Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Description:

Byler's papers document his work on behalf of the Native American community after leaving the Association on American Indian Affairs (AAIA). The papers include legal memoranda, draft and final agreements between Native American communities and companies or government agencies, and court documents, as well as topical files of related legislation and reports on the issues. The majority of the cases are concerned with water and land rights of individual tribes. Other issues include the use of natural resources and mining, tribal status, social services, and legislation that effected Native American communities. The collection also includes administrative and financial documents from the firms Gerard, Byler and Associates and William Byler Associates, along with the papers of legislative consultant Fraser Barron.
