Southwest Intertribal Court of Appeals

The Southwest Intertribal Court of Appeals (SWITCA) provides an appellate court forum for tribes located in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and West Texas. Since its inception in 1989, SWITCA has allowed Tribal Courts to bring cases before a panel of experienced judges to render decisions at the appellate level for those Tribes that do not have the financial means or governmental infrastructure to administer a Court of Appeals for Tribal Court decisions.
