Online access
Public message
Full description
The Northern Justice Society Bibliography contains references to a wide range of research, policy and program materials relating to Native involvement with the criminal justice system in the U.S., Canada and Greenland. As well, there are listings for comparative materials from Australia and Scandinavia. In addition, the bibliography has listings for documents in related areas, including health and welfare, drug and alcohol use, jurisdictional issues and education. Of particular interest are the many materials relating to community-based initiatives and programs designed to address Native conflict with the law. Please note that documents listed in the bibliography relate to status and non-status Indians, Inuit, Metis and aboriginal peoples.

This bibliography is not current. Records were added to this database between approximately 1985 to 1994.
