Navajo Nation Peacemaking Program Place Category: Traditional Practices NAVAJO NATION PEACEMAKING PROGRAM The Navajo Nation Peacemaking Program provides a traditional-culture alternative to Anglo-American justice practices by utilizing Diné wisdom, customs, and practices to resolve disputes. The program seeks justice for everyone involved by engaging the skills and perspectives of community members to come to a mutual solution. Community members sit down with the disputing parties to talk through issues, rather than having a “disinterested” third party (e.g., judge) make the decision for them. The consensual agreement of the parties in peacemaking emphasizes healing and lasting solutions rather than an adjudication of damages or punishment. Roman Bitsuie, Peacemaking Program Coordinator navajocourts.org/indexpeacemaking.htm The Navajo Nation occupies portions of northeastern Arizona, southeastern Utah, and northwestern New Mexico. At 27,000 square miles, the Navajo Nation is the largest Indian reservation in the United States, larger than the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island combined. To the southeast of the main reservation, in New Mexico, are three noncontiguous Navajo territories: the Ramah Navajo Indian Reservation, the Alamo Navajo Indian Reservation, and the Tohajiilee Indian Reservation. The Nation’s land consists of varying physical environments including arid deserts, alpine forests, high plateaus, mesas, and mountains up to 10,500 feet.

The Center for Court Innovation operates two peacemaking programs—one in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and the other in Syracuse, N.Y. Facilitated by trained peacemakers from the community, peacemaking sessions enable those affected by a dispute to “talk it out” and reach agreement about restitution and repair.
