The primary mission of the Compliance Review Section is the application and interpretation of Federal, State, and Tribal laws in order to ensure the preservation of the Seminole past and present. The Compliance Review Section is responsible for the review of federal undertakings located within the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s area of interest – the geographic area considered by the Seminole Tribe of Florida to be ancestral, aboriginal, or ceded, that comprise the Southeastern United States, and its six reservations within the State of Florida.
