Indian Stories and Legends of the Stillaguamish and Allied Tribes
The Indian had no law books. He had the unwritten law. It worked. For instance a man accused of adultery was tried by members of the tribe and if found guilty, he was publicly flogged. If the crime was, repeated he was given a heavier dose and the third time banished.
The methods of dealing with law violators varied greatly among the different tribes.
