Traditional Peacemaking: Exploring The Intersections Between Tribal Courts and Peacemaking, Including Alternatives to Detention (Oct 6-7, 2014)

The National American Indian Court Judges Association, along with its partners the Native American Rights Fund and Columbia University Law School, invite you to attend a training focused on Traditional Peacemaking. The purpose of this training is to introduce TCCLA grantees and other attendees to the various peacemaking models that are being used in tribal courts, including those that are being used as alternatives to detention. The goal of this training is to explore the ways in which tribal courts integrate traditional justice and community values into varied aspects of tribal civil and criminal justice, to provide experiential training and tips for accessing tribal judicial systems that utilize cultural forms of justice, and to provide explanation of how traditional peacemaking can unlock new approaches to provide effective representation of civil and criminal legal services clients, with special attention to indigent criminal defendants whenever appropriate.
