Significance: This simple frame structure is the last remaining representative of the system of district courts of the Cherokee Nation. As such it is a reflection of an aspect of jurisprudence rare in American history: a court operating within the United States, but for most of its existence subject only to the Cherokee Constitution, and not to the United States Government; the judiciary of a civilized people who regarded themselves as sovereign, and as a peer of the United States.
