About the Conference

The American Indian Justice Conference offers tribes across the nation an opportunity to develop plans to enhance tribal systems while providing essential information on matters concerning court development, drug and alcohol abuse strategies, SORNA Implementation, and other relevant topic areas. Join other tribal community justice professionals and practitioners with technical assistance providers to address multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional approaches to the development of justice programs.

Conference goals were established by building upon past conferences and responding to recommendations of Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) grantees.  These goals include:
  • Building strong and sustainable tribal justice systems by highlighting strategies.
  • Sharing details on tribal programs that have a positive impact in their community justice system.
  • Providing information to tribal justice system personnel on topics such as court planning and development, diversionary court programs, traditional dispute resolution, justice system responses to alcohol and substance abuse, and emerging issues that are relevant to tribal justice system development.
The conference planning committee is comprised of the following BJA Training and Technical Assistance Partners:
