United States Indian tribal courts: R42-2/6-1976E-PDF

a bibliography /

"The major thrust of the division's recent socio-legal research on Inuit (Eskimos) and the administration of criminal justice has been an evaluation of their adaptation to Canadian law-ways and formalized agencies of social control. However, one of the findings of this and other research, confirmed at the recent Edmonton Conference on Native Peoples and The Criminal Justice System, has been an expression of doubts by aboriginal peoples as to whether these existing structures, including the judiciary, can effectively deter ordeal with the anti-social behaviour of native offenders or ensure the adequate protection of possible victims or members of the community. In response to this issue, the division engaged Susan Karamessines to prepare a bibliography on the American Indian Tribal Court System for distribution to native peoples and others in their consideration of alternative models to adjudication."--Foreword.
