Two articles that originally appeared in the Alaska Justice Forum have been reprinted in the Altamira Press Tribal Legal Studies Textbook Series. "Circle Peacemaking," by Lisa Rieger, which was first published in the Winter 2001 (Vol. 17, No. 4) issue, examines the use of circle sentencing in Kake. It is included in Introduction to Tribal Legal Studies (Walnut Hill, CA: Altamira Press, 2004). Phyllis Morrow's "A Sociolinguistic Mismatch: Central Alaskan Yup'iks and the Legal System" appeared in Summer 1993 (Vol. 10, No. 2). This article analyzes the problems posed by linguistic and cultural differences in the interaction between Yup'ik speakers and the Western, English-based justice system. It has been reprinted in Tribal Criminal Law and Procedure (Walnut Hill, CA: Altamira Press, 2004).
Lisa Rieger was formerly a faculty member with the Justice Center. She is currently an attorney with CIRI. Phyllis Morrow is Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and a Professor of Anthropology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
