The Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians is a self-governing nation with full authority to enact and enforce its own tribal laws. These laws apply to all members of the tribe and to non-members who enter tribal lands or engage in activities that fall under tribal jurisdiction. The tribe’s laws are founded on principles of justice, fairness, and respect for the natural world and the community. The Dry Creek Rancheria Band of Pomo Indians has established a Tribal Court system to interpret and enforce tribal law and to resolve disputes within the community. Those who violate tribal law may face sanctions, which could include fines, community service, or even exclusion from tribal lands, as decided by the Tribal Court.
