Pascua Yaqui Tribe set to prosecute first non-Indian under a new law

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe’s justice system was recently featured in a Washington Post article.    

The Pascua Yaqui, along with two other tribes chosen by the Justice Department for a pilot project allowing the prosecution of non-tribal men who are accused of committing acts of domestic violence on the reservation, received the go-ahead to begin enforcing a new federal law a year ahead of the country’s other 563 tribes.
