  • Tulalip Tribes’ Elder Court gives youths a second

    By Krisa Kapralos
    Tulalip, Washington (AP)

    The young man wore loose jeans slung low on his hips. The hems were worn and frayed, and wet from being trampled on rain-soaked sidewalks. A large black sweatshirt flopped over his shoulders and arms.

    It was 7:30 a.m., and he needed help.

    I lived near this rez in Washington State
    It is good to hear that somebody is trying to help these kids instead of just allowing the "system" to take care of them

    To use elders to teach the youth
    Dang what a concept!!!!

      I was involved in a project where the Crown and Judiciary were also doing a process similar to this in the very early 1990's. It was a very good project that failed in the end but not because of the work completed. It failed because the people in charge of looking after the clients would not write reports to discuss the follow through or completion of the Elders expectations. This is a results and quanitifiable oriented field. If you are not able to demonstrate that then it is likely these types of initiatives will be doomed. People want to see a trail of the work completed.
