Court of Appeals

Decisions of the District Court may be appealed to the Court of Appeals. The Justices, all Band elders, are each appointed from one of the Band’s three Districts. The Court of Appeals also has original jurisdiction over forcible entry and detainer and prohibited drug cases.

A Chief Justice is selected by the Associate Justices and is responsible for administering the Court of Central Jurisdiction overall. The Court of Appeals issues the Rules of Court that govern District Court and appellate matters.
