Promising Strategies: Tribal-State Intergovernmental Collaborations

Since time immemorial, people have come together and found various ways to resolve disputes, heal individuals, and make communities whole. Today, as we look to Tribal and nontribal justice systems, we see judicial leaders and their justice partners striving to be fair and just, addressing a myriad of complex problems, and realizing that they cannot find solutions to these problems alone. This report describes a joint jurisdictional approach that is resiliency building and strengthens government-to-government relationships. It asks us to reimagine justice. It invites those who are impacted by courts, service providers, and judges to connect in new ways and rebuild justice systems so they can restore individual, family, and community function.
