This book is about peacemaking as it exists in the Navajo Nation today, describing its origins, history, context, and contributions with an eye toward sharing knowledge between Navajo and European-based criminal justice systems. It provides practitioners with information about important aspects of peacemaking – such as structure, procedures, and outcomes – that will be useful for them as they work with Navajo courts and the peacemakers.
