How long is a protection order in effect?

Protection orders can last for different periods of time depending on the laws of the specific Native American tribe/pueblo or Alaskan village. For example, on Navajo Lands, a protection order can last for up to five years,1 while a protection order only lasts for one year on Cherokee lands.2
