Decolonizing Indigenous Restorative Justice is Possible

This paper looks at Indigenous restorative justice in relation to decolonization. It examines the idea that Indigenous people are moving toward decolonization of their inherent justice models in order to resolve conflicts and promote healing in the community. What Indigenous people found in the exploration of decolonization became the foundation for the renaissance of restorative justice. The major assumption of this work is that Indigenous communities can move toward healing by identifying and re-establishing justice processes based on ancient customs and ways of knowing.
