In the California Native American community, a revolution is being forged. Tribes are creating their own court systems, which emphasize solving problems and saving lives over standard legal means. The illuminating documentary, Tribal Justice focuses on the Yurok and the Quechan tribes. Chief Justice Abby Abinati is the heart and soul of the successful Yurok Tribal Wellness Program, which is the benchmark for the tribal court model. Claudette C. Whit
e is the Chief Justice of the Quechan Tribe, which is in the process of building a Wellness Court of its own. Through both judges’ experience, we become acquainted with three people going through the Wellness Court program, which strives to rehabilitate with the restorative power of deep tribal tradition and customs, with an objective to heal an entire culture’s spirit, along with individual lives.
