Law Review Article – “Anishinaabe Law and The Round House”

Matthew Fletcher wrote a great law review article on traditional dispute resolution see abstract below.

Abstract: This paper addresses the Indian country criminal justice system’s difficulties through the context of the Great Lakes Anishinaabeg’s traditional customs, traditions, and laws, and their modern treatment of crime. Louise Erdrich’s The Round House expertly captures the reality of crime and fear of crime in Anishinaabe Indian country, and offers a bleak view of the future of criminal justice absent serious reform in the near future.
