North Central Idaho Jurisdictional Alliance
NCIJA was formed to defend the members and citizens of the area from the ever expanding claims of the Nez Perce Tribe to jurisdiction (legal authority) over the residents and property of the area within the 1863 treaty boundary. We intend to vigorously defend against and resist the alleged claims of expanded jurisdiction. This may include court action where deemed appropriate. Our purpose is not to eliminate the tribal government, tribal culture or heritage, but to insure that area residents are not subject to the jurisdiction, regulation or control of this tribal government in which representation, due process of law and civil rights are nonexistent or extremely limited.
