Event description

Description

The 2017 Tribal Justice Forum is a two-day event featuring seven Indigenous women working toward tribal justice in academic, legal, and cultural venues throughout the country, and a screening of the award-winning film from Vision Maker Media. The 2nd day of this event includes a screening of Tribal Justice – a co-production of Anne Makepeace Productions, Vision Maker Media and American Documentary | POV – that centers on two Native American judges who 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. Following the film, the audience will hear from a local practitioner of Indian law in addition to the filmmaker and featured judge regarding their experiences pursuing tribal justice in and beyond Indian Country, and will have an opportunity to discuss the film's significance with the panelists. The panelists are Anne Makepeace, Lindsey Schuler, and Claudette White; the moderator is Rebekka Schlichting.

This screening and panel are free and open to the public. It is sponsored by Native American Studies with contributions from the Department of History, College of Arts & Sciences, College of Law, Institute for Ethnic Studies, OASIS, and Women’s & Gender Studies Program.

Doors for the screening will open at 6:00 pm. Garage and metered parking will be available. Please note that while the street meters run until 6:00 pm, the University meters in the lot southwest of the Union run until 7:30 pm. A campus visitor parking map can be found here.
