Civil and criminal jurisdiction of Indians on and off Indian lands is a complex, evolving issue in Indian Country. Jurisdictional questions may be approached from the presumption of inherent Tribal power over matters arising within Tribal territory. Attention should be paid, however, to the degree to which the federal government has chosen to intrude on or limit that power, either directly or by permitting the states to do so. Resolution of jurisdictional questions today will involve the interrelation of several factors:

●    Geography:  Is Indian Country involved?
●    Parties: Are they (or is the victim) Indian?
●    Subject matter: Does the case involve interests of Tribal self-government?

Interests of Tribal self-government must be analyzed in the context of the facts of the particular case. The Tribe’s interest in the jurisdiction and authority of its courts over reservation affairs may be sufficient to place the case exclusively within Tribal court jurisdiction. Within Indian Country, the rules change drastically. Definition is therefore crucial. This seminar is important for all members of Tribes who are involved in their governance and future expansion or maintenance.
