The native traditions in the field of justice are based on principles that hinge on a restorative paradigm of justice. The contribution of this paper is to give a critical understanding of the development of contemporary restorative justice in native communities. This development will be exposed within the presentation of an existing model of restorative justice: the Community Holistic Circle Healing of Hollow Water, an Ojibway community in Manitoba, Canada. The meaning of restorative justice in native communities will be discussed.
