American Indians Unite to Fight Dollar General's Attack on Tribal Sovereignty

 


LAME DEER, MONTANA – Today, the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (“NIWRC”) filed anamicus brief calling on the United States Supreme Court to uphold the authority of Tribes to exercise civil jurisdiction over non-Indians who sexually assault and abuse Native women and children on tribal lands.

“NIWRC recognizes, however, that safety is not possible when tribal governments are stripped of the jurisdiction necessary to protect their women and children.” NIWRC filed its amicus brief in the Supreme Court to preserve the inherent sovereign authority of American Indian Nations to protect their women and children living on tribal lands.
