Peacemaking webinar set for Feb. 27

A free 90-minute webinar, “Peacemaking Part II,” is set for 2:30 p.m. (ET) February 27.

This session, a follow-up to a 2017 Peacemaking webinar, will discuss how tribal traditions may hold a solution to problems that have proven especially difficult in tribal court, provide examples of how other tribes have had success, and explain how this movement is part of a bigger picture, even internationally, of how indigenous communities are using their own wisdom to solve their problems.

Peacemaking is not alternative dispute resolution to Native communities – it is the original, traditional way Native communities managed to work through disputes for centuries before tribal courts were created.

Because of natural limitations inherent in tribal courts, there is increasing interest in the continuation and revitalization of those traditional ways.

The presenter is Professor Shawn Watts (Cherokee), clinical associate professor and director of the University of Kansas, School of Law Mediation Clinic.

The moderator is Rebekah HorseChief (Osage), program coordinator, National American Indian Court Judges Association.
