Twenty years ago, elders and community leaders at Hollow Water teamed up with social services counsellors and launched what Hardisty describes as a comprehensive networking and healing system, called Community Holistic Circle Healing (CHCH). If a community member is accused of a crime, instead of being sent to a prison or detainment centre, another community member or an officer refers the victimizer to CHCH. Hollow Water has confronted sexual abuse, incest, and alcoholism not through retributive, punitive measures, but through these restorative-justice healing circles. (excerpt)
