IN SEARCH OF HEALING JUSTICE
This presentation from the March 2009 Aboriginal Justice Strategy Conference, in Vancouver B.C., features two brave First Nations women who challenged convention, bureaucracy and themselves to discover a healing process which included face to face reconciliation between them: one the family survivor of the murder committed by the other. Their common experiences, cultural values and quest for healing show how truth, respect and honesty help to form an innate sense of justice so often ignored by typical legal and corrective proceedings. Their persistence, despite all odds, to follow a spiritual path to justice, and to exhibit such a profound sense of inclusion and acceptance in the face of tragedy, challenges not only our cultural expression or ideas of justice, but our personal strengths, our convictions and the fortitude of our compassion.
