"Tribal Justice" A Film by Anne Makepeace at The Moviehouse Studio Gallery in Millerton

The film will be followed by a community discussion and Q&A with Makepeace in which we will examine the together the issues she raises in the film. 

Tribal Justice follows two extraordinary Native American women, both chief judges for their tribes’ courts.  Abby Abinanti, Chief Judge of the Yurok Tribe on the northwest coast of California, and Claudette White, Chief Judge of the Quechan Tribe in the southeastern desert near Yuma, California, are creating innovative systems that focus on restoring rather than punishing offenders in order to keep tribal members out of prison, prevent children from being taken from their communities, and stop the school-to-prison pipeline that plagues their young people.
