Tribal Laws and Ordinances

At its Annual General Meeting on June 4, 2016, the Penobscot Nation adopted Penobscot Tribal Laws Chapter 30, the “Penobscot Nation Tribal Law and Court Opinions Publication Law” which mandated that all Penobscot Nation tribal laws be accessible to tribal members and to the public. By Tribal Council Resolution, on August 2, 2016, the Nation entered into a publication agreement with the non-profit law firm the Native American Rights Fund (“NARF”) to digitize and publish the Nation’s tribal laws and ordinances on the National Indian Law Library’s “Tribal Law Gateway.”  A free searchable database of the Penobscot Nation tribal laws and ordinances can be accessed here:  http://www.narf.org/nill/codes/penobscot/index.html
