Born and raised in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, Victoria Holland grew up in the heart of the Oklahoma Cherokee Reservation. 

While attending Northeastern State University she began working for her tribe, the United Keetoowah Band. It was there that she discovered her passion for helping tribes. After graduating with her bachelor’s degree, she began working for the UKB full time in various departments. 

While employed with the UKB, the UKB was fighting to maintain their primary revenue source – their casino – which was entwined in a legal dispute. This legal battle is what inspired Tori to go to law school so she could help not only her tribe, but other tribes similarly situated. 

She graduated from the University College of Law with her J.D. and certifications in Native American Law and Peacemaking. As a law student, she worked for firms that practiced in Indian country, was the president of the OU Native American Law Student Association, served on the National Native American Law Student Association, and was a finalist in the National moot court competition. 

Upon graduation and passing the bar exam, she began working at Devol and Associates as an associate. In her time with the firm, she has worked on all things tribal. Through the firm, Tori has served as a deputy attorney general for several tribes in Oklahoma, regularly reviews gaming contracts, gaming regulations, drafts tribal codes, represents tribes in contract negotiations, and provides as general council. 

Tori was the first prosecutor for the Comanche Nation when they began their tribal court in 2018 and is a prosecutor for other tribes where she seeks justice for native communities. She works closely with law enforcement, domestic violence advocates, and victims to ensure that tribal communities see justice. She is the primary prosecutor for the Seminole Nation Drug Court. She has also been classified as an expert witness in federal prosecution for cross deputization matters. 

Tori has a passion for Indian law and helping tribes exercise their sovereignty.
