The ABM has designed a corporation structure and charter under Section 17 of the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 (IRA) and ratified its approval from the Department of Interior on May 3, 2017.
Tribal sovereign immunity can impede a tribe's economic growth and participation in the business world. A Section 17 corporation gives tribes the power to incorporate and enables them to waive sovereign immunity to facilitate business transactions, thereby fostering tribal economic development and independence.
