Feds Kick In Grants For Tribal Justice Programs

Native American tribes across the country have worked over the years to install justice systems that are in tune with tribal culture.  The federal government provides financial support to the efforts, and recently awarded large sums to tribes in our region. 

The Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indians plans to use the money--more than $700,000--for transitional housing.  The Klamath Tribes plan to enhance programs for crime victims, and the Karuk Tribe will be able to build a Victim Services Access Center.  Tribal representatives join us to explore their plans.
