R.R.S. Neb. § 42-403

I confess that I went out looking for an old looking law this time around. This section comes immediately after a section that goes out of its way (in 1913-era legalese) to make sure that kids aren’t illegitimate even though we don’t like marriage customs that don’t involve paperwork. And maybe a minister.

Marriages and divorces consummated on or after April 8, 1913, among such Indians, or among their descendants, according to Indian custom, are hereby declared to be unlawful and shall be punished as hereinafter provided.
