The Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate court was created by the Oyate’s Constitution to resolve disputes involving Tribal members and non-members and to provide a forum for the prosecution of those persons who commit crimes on the Lake Traverse Indian reservation. Maintaining our civil jurisdiction, we are recognized by the State and Federal Government. Jury trials, juvenile court, child support, custody, and all other legal matters are adjudicated. The goal of the Court is to provide due process to all persons that come before it and to resolve disputes as efficiently as possible using Tribal laws, customs and traditions.
