    Tribal Planning Basics TBD TBD The practice of American Indian tribal planning is based on three foundations: 1) the principle of tribal sovereignty including inherent sovereignty, understood through a combination of the evolution of tribal legislation and tribal court cases that create the power to plan; 2) the application of comprehensive planning processes to the unique setting of individual tribal specific governments; and 3) the evolution and implementation of tribal planning by tribal governments in recent times-the practice of tribal planning.
