While there have been many reports on Saskatchewan Legal Aid and Indian and Native justice, Doreen Vancoughnett focuses in this paper on the way Legal Aid can work closely with Native Justice Committees and Indian groups. Specifically, she examines ways in which such collaboration can enhance sentencing alternatives for Legal Aid recipients and primarily aboriginal offenders. Toward this end, Vancoughnett reviews the Legal Aid system in Saskatchewan, changes in the Legal Aid system, and a vision of a relevant justice system as drafted by the Federation of the Saskatchewan Indian Nations.
