Two Native American judges look to traditional concepts of justice in order to reduce incarceration rates, foster greater safety for their communities, and create a more positive future for youth. By addressing the root causes of crime, the judges are modeling restorative systems that work, and mainstream courts across the country are beginning to take notice. A discussion with Kevin Gover (Pawnee), director of the National Museum of the American Indian, and the featured judges follows the screening. This event is held in the New York museum’s lower-level auditorium.
