Federal Criminal Law To Become Applicable Again At Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation

The U.S. Department of Justice announced this week that the federal government will extend federal criminal jurisdiction to the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation in late 2017. The statement by Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates approved a 2011 request of the Hoopa Valley Tribal Council that the United States apply federal authority over crimes to supplement existing laws. Federal criminal laws will add to tribal and state criminal laws now in force and will not replace any existing law enforcement authority. “This is a major advance for tribal self-governance and reverses a 63-year long conflicted law that has plagued our Reservation for too long,” said Ryan Jackson, Hoopa Valley Tribal Chairman. “While under the outdated and poorly thought out Pubic Law 280 policies, the Federal Government abandoned the Reservation decades ago and left our community and people powerless to fix the problems,” Jackson said.
