Tribal Courts


     Treaty harvest seasons are governed by tribally-adopted codes that are enforced by tribal or state conservation officers. When infractions occur, tribal members are then cited into their own tribal court. Each of GLIFWC’s eleven member tribes maintains its own tribal court where cases are heard and tried by a tribal judge. Penalties for conservation violations vary from tribe to tribe, but include loss of equipment, suspension of harvesting privileges, and monetary fines.
