Resource Directory: Directory of Tribal Courts

Twelve federally recognized tribes in Michigan operate their own tribal courts; in addition, there is one inter-tribal court system. Tribal courts exercise exclusive jurisdiction over misdemeanors involving Indians and concurrent jurisdiction with the federal courts over felonies involving Indians that occur on reservations. Tribal courts have broad powers in matters involving the welfare of Indian children, pursuant to the Indian Child Welfare Act, 25 USC 1901 et seq. Tribal courts also have jurisdiction over a variety of civil matters involving both Indians and non-Indians when the activities in question occur on their reservations. For further information, contact a specific court listed below or Michigan Indian Legal Services, (800) 968-6877.
