Yurok Tribe Expands Justice Programs
Northern California's Yurok Tribe is taking a greater hand in the administration of justice to its members.
The tribe recently opened a new justice center in Klamath, and is making plans to move juvenile cases from state court to tribal court.
The juvenile court plans are part of a larger vision for younger Yuroks through the Yurok Youth Wellness Project.
Abby Abinanti is the tribe's chief justice. She joins us to add details to the Yurok plans.
