Marksville State Historic Site Teaches History of Native American Laws

American Indian customs include laws that were designed to protect them from man and beast. However, some survive to modern times and others have been discarded.

The history of these laws is taught at the Marksville State Historic Site. This museum is devoted to the lives of the Native Americans who first called this area home. They lived according to a set of customs handed down from generation to generation.

Most Native American laws are regulated within the various tribes. They have their own judges and law enforcement officials. Some matters are typically handled in federal courts.
