Article: Cut Rate Genocide: Harsh federal sentences for Natives and their ancient judicial alternative

In this rigorously-researched article, author Stephanie Woodard explores the some harsh realities of federal law enforcement within Native American tribal nations’ jurisdictions, and little-known history of the landmark case from the late 1800’s that started us down that path. Then, she explores how some of the problems seen today are being answered as tribal nations and others look to peacemaking and other similar tradition-based approaches for modern-day solutions.
