Tribal Government

Executive Building

Modular Building

The Tohono O'odham Nation is comprised of three branches of government; Executive (which houses the Chairman and Vice-Chairman's office), Legislative (which houses the tribal council representatives-two reps from each of the 12 districts) and Judicial (which houses the courts and judges). The three branches of government exist together in a system of checks and balances and allows the Nation to conduct business with the assurance that each branch will keep the other two in harmony.
