Around the world, indigenous communities are fighting for ­ and winning ­ long-awaited legal and political recognition from international governmental bodies, including the United Nations. At times this recognition leads to special laws and status for First Nations peopleŠ but some say this new status comes at a cost: the loss of true self-determination for their communities.

On this edition, we hear from lawyers and scholars representing these indigenous communities who spoke at ³Transformative Justice in Communities of Color² ­ an event held at the University of California at Berkeley, in September 2008.


Rebecca Tsosie, Indian Legal Program at the Arizona State University professor and executive director; and Moana Jackson, New Zealand Ma¯ori and Nga Kaiwhakamarama I Nga Ture (the Ma¯ori Legal Service) director and lawyer
