Kodiak Tribes band together in effort to form Alaska’s first official Inter-Tribal Court System

KODIAK — Kodiak’s Native tribes gathered for a three day workshop this week to establish what might be Alaska’s first official Inter-Tribal Court System. The Kodiak Inter-Tribal Court Workshop and Roundtable took place Tuesday through Thursday and was sponsored by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak, which is currently the archipelago’s only tribe that has a tribal court. 

“All the villages signed a resolution with us, because we’re the only ones that have tribal court,” said Linda Resoff, a tribal court administrator for Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak. “We’ve all been wanting to get together and have what they call an Inter-Tribal Court.”
