"The following model offers an alternative dispute resolution process based on traditional processes and the values of the Indigenous community. This model, which is to be used within Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander communities, is not definitive but merely an exercise in developing real alternatives to the legal system. It is an attempt to use creativity and flexibility in developing legal processes whose outcomes are fair and just. It is also an example of a model that does not simply transplant non-Indigenous methods of alternative dispute resolution but rather reflects the values of the Aboriginal community itself." (excerpt)
