About the Court

Welcome To Wind River Tribal Court

The Shoshone & Arapaho Courts of the Wind River Reservation are Courts of general civil and criminal jurisdiction at both the trial and appellate levels.

The Wind River Tribal Court serves the Wind River Reservation and members of the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho Tribe.  The Shoshone and Arapaho Law and Order Code was adopted in 1987 by both tribes. There have been updates and revisions to the code since that time and the Wind River Tribal Court enforces the tribal code.


“The Mission of the Wind River Tribal  Court is to provide a consistent forum for the legal resolution of all disputes within the Court’s jurisdiction, arising between members of the community, by implementing Tribal Law in an equitable and respectful way, while promoting the community values of respect and culture that allow for unity, fairness and due process for all members of the community.”
