Washington Tribal Law and Governments
Washington law is subject to the supremacy of the United States Constitution. It is also subject to the supremacy of rights recognized in treaties between the United States government and Indian tribes. Indian lands and tribal members are subject to the constitutions and legal codes adopted by their tribal governments. Tribal courts have jurisdiction to enforce these constitutions and laws.
