The mission of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Court is to exercise, to the maximum extent possible, the powers authorized by the Tribal Constitution. As a separate but equal branch of the Tribal government the court will fairly and without prejudice adjudicate all civil matters authorized by the Tribal Council including but not limited to appeals.
The Purpose of the Tribal Court is to serve all tribal members who have a civil complaint against another tribal person or entity. The Tribal Court allows for civil cases to be heard within a judicial process that reflects both tribal traditions and community standards for conflict resolution.
All individuals who appear before the tribal court are assured a fair, prompt, and impartial hearing that guarantees their rights as outlined by the Tribal Constitution. There are three types of courts as described below:
