Every New Year brings new statutes and regulations, and 2019 is no exception. Among the many state and federal statutes and regulations that are going into effect in 2019 or carrying over from 2018, many directly impact Native American individuals and tribal nations. From new state regulations on the wearing of tribal regalia and water use to federal laws regarding gaming and Social Security benefits, we find ourselves in a new legal landscape in 2019.
You can find a list of notable changes to the law impacting Native American communities that have recently gone into effect, or are ongoing in their implementation, on the Procopio website. (We’ve also published a list of new real estate statutes and regulations that may be of interest.)
Gabriela Rios is an associate with Procopio’s Native American Law practice proup and citizen of the Cahuilla Band of Indians.

It is rare for the general public to get a genuine, first person glimpse into the family history of some of the original inhabitants of what we now know as San Diego County. Procopio is very proud to provide you just such an opportunity later this month.
As part of Procopio’s ongoing sponsorship of the San Diego History Center’s Nyaiwait Chiwayp/ In Our Words: Kumeyaay series of talks and presentations, we encourage your attendance at the next program in the series occurring on January 24, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the San Diego History Center located in Balboa Park (Casa Del Prado, 1649 El Prado, Suite 3, San Diego). The presentation will be provided by David Toler, author of Blood of the Band, An Ipai Family Story, which relates the journey of a Kumeyaay-Ipai family from origin to present day. The programs in this series have proven very popular and fill up fast, so we strongly encourage you to RSVP. The cost for the programs, which benefits the San Diego History Center, is $10.
“Blood of the Band is meant as an acknowledgment of the stamina, resilience, and perseverance of our region’s native peoples, not only during prehistoric times, but also in the face of more recent adversities, and, ultimately, successes.” (Dedication from Blood of the Band). A link to Mr. Toler’s book can be found here. We look forward to seeing you at the January 24 presentation of Blood of the Band.
