Council of Native Races
|Council of Native Races|
The Council of Native Races is a fraternity of galactic nonhuman species. It's purpose is to advocate the economic and cultural interests of indigenous communities.
The CNR was plagued with the stigma of being anti-human militarists due to its refusal to admit humans. They were even declared a terrorist organisation by the Galactic Empire and mentioned in an the Imperial News Publication Iron Will as possible culprits for an act of bio-terrorism.
The leadership of the CNR is known as the "Council Chamber".It consists of at least one representative from each member community.Their purpose is the coordination of CNR policy.
