Zuni Tribal Courts

The Zuni Tribal Court was established in 1975 by the adoption of the Constitution of the Zuni Tribe. Article IV of the Zuni Constitution provides that The government of the Zuni Tribe shall consist of a Legislative, and Executive, and a Judicial Department. The Judicial Department of the Zuni Tribe consists of a Chief Judge and two Associate Judges, appointed by the Governor of the Zuni Tribe, with the concurrence of the tribal council. With the enactment of the Zuni Tribal Code on December 20, 1976, the Zuni Tribal Council established the Zuni Tribal Court as a court of civil and limited criminal jurisdiction. The Zuni Tribal Council declared that as a matter of Tribal policy the interests of the Zuni Tribe require that the Tribe provides itself, its members and other persons living on the [Zuni] Reservation or who are within the jurisdiction of the Tribe with an effective means of redress in both civil and criminal cases. See, Section 1-2-1 of the Zuni Tribal Code. The Tribal Council thereupon defined the territorial, personal and subject matter jurisdiction of the Zuni Tribal Court.
