  • Anishinaabe law and "The Round House"

    This article discusses the rising Indian country violent crime and novelist Lousie Eldrich's "The Round House" which addresses modern Anishinaabe violent crime where women are violently attacked, and the failure of the federal and tribal criminal justice system to resolve the crime. This article discusses traditional and modern Anishinaabe law, how the two merge, and the problems with contemporary law enforcement mechanisms in the light of jurisdictional issues and a cultural divide.
