Community-Based and Trauma-Informed Tribal Court with Judge Abby Abinati

Judge Abby Abinati is the Chief Judge of the Yurok Tribe, which is the largest surviving Native American Tribe in the state of California. Judge Abby shares about what she and her people have learned directly about cultural and intergenerational trauma, and how this trauma-informed understanding provides the context for her work within her community.

Judge Abby presides over what is called a wellness court, which offers a healing path for nonviolent offenders. She describes the Tribal judicial system as “responsibility-based” - as opposed to a “rights-based” system that has become the American standard. She provides real-life examples of restorative justice and how this promotes interpersonal healing, strengthening self-esteem and community relationships.

Judge Abby shares about the work she and others are doing to return to their traditional values and create systems that support them. She reflects on the healing she’s witnessed within her community, and says, “When you’ve gone through really hard times and you can share that, there is a way to make the pain lessen. What is another way out of this pain?”

About Judge Abby:
