Where: Olde Pine Theatre, 113 2nd St. SW, Pine Island, MN 55963

When: Tuesday, March 27th at 6:30pm

The Van Horn Public Library is hosting a town read of the book Voices in the Stones by Kent Nerburn. In conjunction to reading the book, they are screening Tribal Justice to engage the city further in issues surrounding Native Americans today. Their goal for the event is to broaden the awareness of some of the judicial issues and hold a facilitated discussion on them.

Tribal Justice Conversation Starters:

Judge White explains, “In the tribal court process, we focus on restoration. We focus on trying to put families back together and give them what they need to make them whole.” What do you think families need in order to be “whole”? What should happen when individual families don’t have the capacity to make themselves whole? What are the government and community’s roles, if any, in helping families meet those needs before crimes occur? How about after crimes occur?
