(A) Policy. It is the policy of the Karuk Tribe to encourage cooperation and the formation of agreements between the Tribe and any tribal, state, federal, county, or nongovernmental organization that can assist in providing care and support to children. It is also the policy of the Karuk Tribe to ensure that other governments and agents of those governments respect its sovereign status and the jurisdiction of its Tribal Court.
(B) Agreements. The Karuk Tribe may enter into such intergovernmental agreements with federal agencies, states and their political subdivisions, and Indian tribes, as it deems appropriate for the provision of care to children in need of care, the orderly transfer of cases between jurisdictions and division of jurisdictional authority over children subject to the Children and Family Code (this title).
(C) Full Faith and Credit. State court orders involving children under the jurisdiction of the Tribal Court may be recognized by the Court only after a full independent review of such state proceedings has determined that:
(1) The state court had jurisdiction over the child;
(2) The applicable provisions of the Indian Child Welfare Act and other applicable laws were properly followed;
(3) Due process was provided to all interested persons participating in the state proceeding; and
(4) The state court proceeding did not violate the public policies, customs or common law of the Karuk Tribe.
(D) Court orders of other tribal courts involving children and families over whom the Tribal Court may take jurisdiction shall be recognized by the Court after the Court has determined that:
(1) The other tribal court exercised proper subject matter jurisdiction and personal jurisdiction over the parties; and
(2) Due process was accorded to all interested parties participating in the other tribal court proceeding;
(3) The tribal court proceeding did not violate the public policies, customs or common law of the Karuk Tribe.
