About the Tribal Courts Council
The Tribal Courts Council is devoted to the recognition and enhancement of American Indian Tribal courts and the judges thereof. Today, many believe that American Indians have become a neglected and often forgotten minority. Tribal Court justice systems in the United States for many are unknown, misunderstood or ignored. The same is true of the many contributions to our unique democracy made by the democratic governments of Native Americans before and during the time of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America.
The very first Tribal Court Litigation Update of selected tribal court decisions from across the country prepared for inclusion in the Federal Bar Association's 31st Annual Indian Law Conference held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
