I have the opposite problem I want to move jurisdiction to tribal court from state court. I am native and so our my children. I’ve read
countless stories of children being removed from their homes and it is sad. I feel where you are coming from. But trust me it’s just as hard for me to have my cased moved to tribal court. I feel my children and I have a chance to remain a family in tribal court than to be racially profiled in a state court. If you know of any laws or cases that would justify our tribe of having jurisdiction over us please let me know.
