The foundational principles of real property law with respect to the jurisdiction of lands situated within that state seem to be settled areas of the law. However, this is not the case when we ask about civil jurisdiction of Indian tribal governments with respect to a competing party’s rights to lands situated within the state and within reservation boundaries. This article will address and shed light on evolving topic of Indian tribal government civil jurisdiction in relation to tribal property and the competing jurisdictional interplay between state and tribal courts.
