Kenaitze Tribe launches joint-jurisdiction court

 


Kenaitze Indian Tribe in Kenai is partnering with the State of Alaska to develop the state’s first joint-jurisdiction therapeutic court. Proponents say it’s a step towards better support for community members — both Native and non-Native — who are struggling with substance abuse and the legal system.

The state and tribe signed documents to form the court this fall, but it’s been in the works for years, and the issues it addresses came even earlier.
