What Does Native Justice Look Like?

Exploring Native Justice

In Native communities, there are increasing calls for justice, the return of Native lands, the repatriation of Native bodies and sacred objects, and an acknowledgement of the historical wrongs perpetuated against Indigenous peoples.

But what exactly does Native justice look like? First Nations convened 16 Native leaders and knowledge holders to explore this question and share frameworks for achieving Native justice through the knowledge and traditions that have guided Indigenous people since time immemorial.

This Native Justice Essay series begins with an introduction by Sarah Hernandez, Ph.D., and Raymond Foxworth, Ph.D.

Dr. Hernandez curated the collection of essays, which will be released weekly throughout fall 2023.
