This text will be what students call a keeper, one that goes in the personal library after the course is over. Carrie E. Garrow and Sarah Deer have done for tribal criminal justice what Vine Deloria, Jr. did for tribal religion in God is Red. They have generalized a subject that is nearly impossible to generalize. They draw straight lines from tribal custom to common law as justice-defining institutions. -- Steve Russell, Indiana University, citizen of the Cherokee Nation I'm impressed with the background and history explaining the evolution of the justice systems and the mire of jurisdictional barriers that abound in Indian country. The reluctance to accept a foreign system in lieu of a traditional system is explained. I recommend this book for education and training of tribal justice practitioners and individuals interested in understanding Tribal governments. -- Edward Reina, Jr., Yavapai-Prescott Tribal Police, Arizona This book is a comprehensive approach to the subject matter. The authors include traditional stories, excerpts from scholarly work, and briefs or transcripts from actual legal cases. These materials will aid students, practitioners, and scholars in the application of native trial law to practical concerns they encounter on a daily basis. The examples are well-chosen, and important terms are clearly defined. End of chapter questions should stimulate debate and deepen the reader's awareness of the material that is presented. In short, the book is a major contribution to understanding the contextualization and application of native tribal law. -- Jeffrey Ian Ross, University of Baltimore Finally, a book examining the complex subject of criminal law and jurisdiction on Indian reservations from a tribal perspective, utilizing the decisions of tribal judges and borrowing from the cultural values of native persons. A comprehensive review of criminal law jurisdiction in Indian country that does not merely rehash the decisions from Anglo courts that touch on Indian issues merely in passing, Tribal Criminal Law and Procedure instead assesses the purpose of law and justice systems in Indian communities based upon the diverse mores and values of native peoples. This book would be an outstanding contribution to the study of criminal law and jurisdiction in Indian country in both tribal community colleges and other universities. -- B. J. Jones, Northern Plains Tribal Judicial Institute at the University of North Dakota School of Law Since the first European stepped onto this continent, tribal sovereignty and tribal judicial systems have faced many challenges. Tribal Criminal Law and Procedure, a comprehensive survey of substantive and procedural criminal law governing tribal judicial systems, is designed to increase the practitioners understanding of these problems and the unique opportunities inherent in tribal judicial systems. It carefully examines tribal judicial systems drawing upon actual tribal court decisions as Indian Nations strive to achieve justice reflecting their own unique fundamental traditional values. This book, written for the learned as well as the lay person, is certainly a worthy investment. As you read it, the reader becomes fully aware of the importance of tribal sovereignty and the importance of developing tribal judicial systems. -- Donovan D. Brown, Sr., Navajo Nation Department of Justice With hundreds of tribal criminal justice systems applying tribal law in order to build community and promote justice in the Indian Nations, this book is long overdue. It is a carefully thought out and imaginatively presented casebook, incorporating legal, historical, and anthropological materials. Particularly important is that it puts tribal criminal law cases at the center of its organization. It is great reading, truly a tribute to the thousands of tribal criminal law officials whose work is represented in the cases. -- Sidney L. Harring, School of Law at Queens College, CUNY In addition to the general issues common to all communities in the administration of criminal justice, tribal/Indigenous communities face unique criminal justice issues distinctive to their communities that result from the intersection of federal Indian Law and internal indigenous law. Tribal Criminal Law and Procedure helps one see both the issues common and unique to the administration of criminal justice for native peoples in the United States and beyond. This is an important introductory text for use in the education/training of Tribal Court professionals to adequately prepare them for the specialized work in tribal justice systems. It is also useful for others interested in the unique aspects of the criminal justice system in Indian country. The book's focused treatment of tribal criminal law and procedure helps one to appreciate the different issues that arise in the administration of criminal justice within tribal communities. -- Christine Zuni Cruz, Director, Southwest Indian Law Clinic, University of New Mexico School of Law
