Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians

The Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians is a sovereign government recognized by the United States. As a sovereign government, the Rincon Band has governmental jurisdiction over its land and people. Tribal governments, like Rincon, have autonomy and are not subject to state jurisdiction, but have a “trust relationship” with the federal government, which includes enforcing federal laws, and participating in issues relating to tribal land and members on a government-to-government basis. “Inherent sovereignty” is based on the fact that tribal nations were governing their lands prior to the founding of the United States; they signed treaties with the federal government guaranteeing the right of self-governance; and are recognized as such in the United States Constitution, and subsequent Supreme Court decisions.
