This paper investigates a case of resistance to the dominant culture in which the criminal justice system is claimed to lack jurisdiction by an indigenous offender. Analysis is then given to the claims of shaming theory, within the context of republican criminology: (a) where there exist ethnographic differences between cultures impacting on conscience and shaming; (b) where there exists marginalization of the Other impacting on reintegration; and (c) in terms of a Hegelian-Marxist position.
