Judicial Branch of the Hopi Tribe

Hopi courts interpret and apply laws relating to the Hopi Tribal Constitution and By-Laws, Hopi Ordinances, Hopi Tribal Resolutions, customs, traditions and culture of the Hopi Tribe, federal laws, rules and regulations, rules and laws of the State of Arizona and common law.

The Hopi Courts do not make the laws; that is the function of the Hopi Tribal Council, nor do the courts carry out the executive functions of the tribal government.

We invite you to visit the court’s website and to visit the Hopi courts.  We are constantly looking for ways to better serve the public, and we hope this website will provide more information about the Hopi Judicial Branch and Hopi Tribal Courts.  You may observe court hearings except cases involving juveniles and children.  Before proceeding further into our website please read the disclaimer statement.

Thank you,
The Hopi Judicial Branch, Tribal Courts Staff
