Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
I. Does the District Court in North Dakota have any jurisdiction over a child custody case that began in the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court when that court awarded custody of an Indian child to his Indian grandmother and both are enrolled members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and live on the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe?

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Whether the Sioux County District Court had jurisdiction to determine paternity when the mother and child are enrolled members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and lived on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation at the time of trial, and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Court previously issued an order awarding the grandmother custody of the child.
