FEBRUARY 27, 2019: PEACEMAKING PART II
This session is a follow-up to the very successful Peacemaking webinar conducted in 2017. This webinar discusses how tribal traditions may hold a solution to some problems that have proven especially difficult in tribal court, provides some examples of how other tribes have had success, and explains how this movement is part of a bigger picture, even internationally, of how indigenous communities are using their own wisdom to solve their problems. Peacemaking is not alternative dispute resolution to Native communities – it is the original, traditional way our communities managed to work through disputes for centuries before tribal courts were created. Because of natural limitations inherent in tribal courts, there is increasing interest in the continuation and revitalization of those traditional ways.
