Know Your Rights and Obligations Regarding Indian Laws
Unless you have been practicing Indian Tribal Law for some years, it is difficult to know how Tribal Law works, much less to find useful resources. At the Law Offices of Thor O. Emblem, our attorneys have experience with Indian Tribal law in California such as reclaiming membership in a tribe.
Tribal reservations can be found in a number of areas in Southern California such as the Coachella Valley, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Indio and Coachella as well as in or near Anza, Cabazon, Temecula, San Jacinto, El Cajon, Pala, in the counties of Riverside, San Diego as well as in Santa Ynez in the county of Santa Barbara.
Tribal court systems can by highly structured with tribal prosecutors and defense advocates. Others are made up of informal single judges who work only part-time. Many tribes elect their tribal judges, commonly for a fixed set of years.
Indian tribes also often have a tribal attorney who often has a large influence on tribal affairs, particularly in dealings with non-tribal parties. The tribal attorney has responsibility to the entire tribe, not to its individual members.
