Fifty-one teams will qualify in the tournament, which consists of an intermediate, senior, masters and women’s division. Teams from the 2017 All Native Basketball tournament automatically received a birth in the 2018 tournament if they won a game. Those teams that went winless played in a qualifying tournament in November, with spots in the All Native going to the top teams. Remaining teams were placed on a standby list based on their finishing position in the tournament.
