In Tribal Justice, a film by Anne Makepeace, 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 youth. By addressing the root causes of crime, they are modeling restorative systems that are working. Mainstream courts across the country begin to take notice. A co-production of Vision Maker Media and American Documentary | POV.

After the 90 minute video we will have a brief mediated conversation about the program and issues and topics covered in the film.

Check out POV’s website for more information and a trailer.
