Making Peace, The Navajo Way.
Witmer, Sharon
Tribal College, v8 n1 p24-26 Sum 1996
Describes the peacemaker system employed by Navajo communities. Suggests that, unlike the European-derived legal system, it utilizes a healing ceremony in which instigators are surrounded by family and friends. Discusses the role of the "naat'aanii" ("one who speaks wisely and well"), who uses persuasive powers to restore harmony and peace. (AJL)
