Chippewa Cree Tribe explores traditional justice

Officials with the Chippewa Cree Tribe of Montana want to return to a more traditional form of law enforcement.

A workshop held at the Stone Child College gave participants an idea of how to implement traditional beliefs in the justice system. Through the use of a mediator, the method encourages mediation rather than punishment.

The workshop was sponsored by the University of Montana with a grant from the Department of Justice's Community Oriented Policing Project. Workshops on family and divorce, and restorative justice will be held this fall.
