Guidiville Indian Racheria Tribal Lending Regulatory Ordinance
We are a tribal lending company wholly owned and operated by the Guidiville Band of Pomo Indians, a Sovereign Nation recognized by the United States Federal Government. The relationship between the United States of America and Indian tribes is defined in the U.S. Constitution’s Commerce Clause which states "[The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;." Essentially this means that Americans and Tribes who do business together must follow all applicable U.S. Federal and Tribal laws.
Additionally, the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution mandates that if both Federal and State governments have laws regarding the same matter, the Federal Law receives priority. State laws regarding commerce do not override Federal law. This question of State jurisdiction with tribes was recently upheld by the US Supreme Court in 2014 (Michigan vs. Bay Mills).
