UPDATED March 12, 2010

This page includes general information about tribal law, information on tribal protection orders, and links to other online resources for domestic violence on tribal land.  For help please see the Native American resources page on this website.

It is impossible to completely generalize about tribes. This information does not apply to all tribes, nor is it written about any one tribe specifically. The tribal court on your reservation, or a community center or women's center in your area may have information specifically about your tribe.

WomensLaw.org would like to thank Sarah Deer at the Tribal Law & Policy Institute for her assistance in collecting this information.
