Welcome to the Havasupai Tribe’s Public Sex Offender Registry Website. The Havasupai Tribe has a compelling interest in promoting public safety on tribal lands and protecting the Havasupai Tribe, its members, and any visitors to the Havasupai Reservation from sex offenders. To this end, the Tribe elected to become a registration jurisdiction under Title I of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (P.L. 109-28), called the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (“SORNA” or the “Act”), passed by the United States Congress in 2006.
SORNA sets comprehensive minimum standards for sex offender registration and notification systems across the United States. Every jurisdiction in the United States must meet or exceed the federal standards set forth the in the SORNA. A “jurisdiction” under the Act includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the principal U.S. territories and any Indian Tribe that elects to become a registration jurisdiction. This means the Havasupai Tribe is responsible for registration and notification duties under the SORNA including: collection of registration information from sex offenders, information sharing with law enforcement, and community notifications.
To carry out its duties under the SORNA, the Havasupai Tribe enacted the Havasupai Tribe Sex Offender Registration and Notification Ordinance (the “SORNA Ordinance”) on October 4, 2011 through Havasupai Resolution No. 28-11. The SORNA Ordinance exercises the inherent and delegated, civil and criminal authority of the Tribe to the fullest extent permitted by tribal, state and federal law. Under the Ordinance, all sex offenders who live, work, or go to school on the Havasupai Reservation MUST register with Bureau of Indian Affairs Law Enforcement. For purposes of the Ordinance, a person lives, works or goes to school on the Reservation if they are present for more than 14 days. In addition, all visitors to the Havasupai Reservation who are sex offenders MUST complete a visitor registration form with Bureau of Indian Affairs Law Enforcement or the Tourist Office. A person is considered a visitor if they remain on the Havasupai Reservation for 1 to 14 days. Failure to register or complete visitor forms will subject an individual to criminal and civil penalties.
