Thursday, March 15, 2018. New York City – There will be two FREE screenings of the “Tribal Justice” documentary in New York City on March 21, 2018 and March 22, 2018. Watch the trailer bellow.
“Two Native American judges reach back to traditional concepts of justice in order to reduce incarceration rates, foster greater safety for their communities, and create a more positive future for their youth. By addressing the root causes of crime, they are providing models of restorative justice that are working. Mainstream courts across the country are taking notice.”
Message from Anne Makepeace: “Two very exciting screenings are coming up next week in New York City, both free and open to the public. If you’re in New York, please come if you can, and wherever you are please help spread the word, as the discussions that follow will be terrific. I will be at both events with Judge Claudette White, her son Zion, and several other tribal members.”

The tribal courts both incorporate traditional values and hold up an example to the nation about the possibilities of alternative dispute resolution. [They] have much to offer to the tribal communities, and much to teach the other court systems operating in the United States.
— The Honorable Sandra Day O’Connor, former Supreme Court Justice
