In Navajo Courts and Navajo Common Law, Justice Austin considers the history and implications of how the Navajo Nation courts apply foundational Navajo doctrines to modern legal issues. He explains key Navajo foundational concepts like Hózhó (harmony), K'é (peacefulness and solidarity), and K'éí (kinship) both within the Navajo cultural context and, using the case method of legal analysis, as they are adapted and applied by Navajo judges in virtually every important area of legal life in the tribe.

In addition to detailed case studies, Justice Austin provides a broad view of tribal law, documenting the development of tribal courts as important institutions of indigenous self-governance and outlining how other indigenous peoples, both in North America and elsewhere around the world, can draw on traditional precepts to achieve self-determination and self-government, solve community problems, and control their own futures.

This is a great book! Easy to read, interesting tidbits and facts! Austin did a great job making a potentially dry topic (law) very interesting!

This is one of the few books of its kind and it is a good book of information on the Navajo courts and navajo common law. The Navajo Nation is still in the developmental process and this is one of the good starts.

This is a great resource for anyone interested in American Indian courts and of course, the Navajo justice system. Former Chief Justice Rayond Austin writes so clearly and the cases he discusses are fascinating. The index is extremely helpful in finding Navajo concepts discussed in the book. This book teaches the reader that there are many different lenses through which one can view justice, and American judges at all levels could learn a lot from reading it. Highly recommended!!!!
