Late last month, an Ak-Chin Indian Community tribal court ruled same-sex couples have the right to get married.

That decision came two years after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage.

With me to talk about what the Ak-Chin court’s decision means for other tribes is legal scholar Ann Tweedy.

Tweedy is an in-house attorney for the Muckleshoot Tribe in Washington state and an adjunct professor at the University of Tulsa.
