The Three Branches
The Muscogee Nation is organized, by Constitution, into three branches of government – the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, with distinct separation of power among the three. The Executive Branch includes the Office of the Principal Chief, Second Chief, Tribal Administrator and Chief of Staff who oversee the daily operations of the tribe. The Legislative Branch is comprised of the National Council of the Muscogee Nation and oversees proposed legislation. The Judicial Branch is divided into two branches including the Muscogee Nation District Court and Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is the Nation’s highest court with original jurisdiction over challenges to the Constitution of the Muscogee Nation, and appellate jurisdiction over cases appealed from the District Court. The Supreme Court is the final authority on the Constitution and Laws of the Muscogee Nation.
