The Daylu Dena Council Justice Program is based on a council approach with skilled coordination of the process. The council consists of Elders, youth and other members of the community. The criteria for admission into the justice program includes: victim, offender, family and community willingness to participate; the offender’s acceptance of his or her responsibility; the availability of resources to deal with the matter; and the assurance that harmony will be restored back into the community. The justice program is designed to bring more responsibility to individuals, family and community. The process fosters a gradual awakening of individuals, family and community.
