about this item

During a quarter of a century, Pommersheim has sat on seven tribal appellate courts and authored more than 125 judicial opinions. This period, beginning in 1987, was one of significant development in tribal court doctrine and institutions, he says, and he documents it using his own career as a case study, and his actual tribal court opinions as the backbone. His introductory chapters discuss from New York City to the Rosebud Sioux Reservation, a model of tribal court jurisprudence, the process of collaboration and collegiality in tribal judicial decision making, and the evolution of a tribal judging philosophy. Then he recounts his movement from tribal court to federal court and from the people to tribal court and back to the people and the community. The cases consider such issues as enrollment and disenrollment, political processes, criminal law, tradition and custom, and due process. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
