This is part one in a series of articles about restorative justice practices of Native American, First Nation, and other indigenous people of North America. The series is not all inclusive. Rather, it is a broad thematic overview. This first article includes interviews with three justice practitioners of the southwestern United States: Robert Yazzie, chief justice emeritus of the Navajo Nation Supreme Court; Joseph Flies Away, a judge in the Hualapai Nation; and James Zion, a Navajo lawyer and a domestic abuse commissioner at a family court in New Mexico. The interviews highlight Native American and First Nation justice philosophy and practice.
