Our vision


What we do

The American Indian Policy Institute (AIPI), a college-level unit within ASU’s Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, focuses on building strong ties to Indigenous urban and rural governments and communities through emerging trends and tribally driven innovative democratic practices. Recognizing the tremendous potential of AIPI in working with tribal communities to develop tribally driven solutions for a broad range of issues facing Indian Country today, Dr. Morris expanded the vision of AIPI to that of a national-level think-tank institute inclusive of a community advisory board that includes tribal leaders and meets regularly.

Our focus areas

  Tribal Digital Sovereignty

  Missing and Murdered Indigenous Peoples




AIPI’s expertise and focus is substantively on broadband technology and digital equity, with expertise in tribal telecommunications, communications policy, and newly emerging systems as they impact sovereign Tribal nations.



We are leading the discourse on tribally-driven, informed policy-making by:
