Blackfeet Tribal Law and Order Code

PREFACE


  1. The Blackfeet Tribal Law and Order Code of 1967, as amended, is a Code written by the Blackfeet Tribe to be administered within the exterior boundaries of the Blackfeet Reservation of Montana, and under no conditions does the State of Montana have jurisdiction over this Code, and further that any portion now in the Blackfeet Tribal Law and Order Code of 1967, as amended, relating to concurrent jurisdiction with said State of Montana, be hereby deleted and such language shall be of no further force or effect.

    (Adopted by Ordinance No. 44, Blackfeet Tribe, December 13, 1974).

  2. It is hereby ordained by the Blackfeet Tribal Business Council that the word "Indian" as found in the Tribal Law and Order Code of 1967, as amended, is hereby deleted from the Tribal Code, and in its place is substituted and inserted the work "person" or similar appropriate pronoun. This change shall include not only the body of the Tribal Law and Order Code, but also any uncodified ordinance of the Blackfeet Tribe, except where such ordinance or Section of the Code is set aside to give Blackfeet members special rights, privileges or duties as against all other persons.

    (Adopted by Ordinance No. 38, Blackfeet Tribe, November 7, 1974).
