Nickson, Neikirk write article on collaboration with tribes

Ray Nickson, Ph.D., associate professor and program director of criminology, and Alice Neikirk, Ph.D., assistant professor of criminology, have had an article accepted for publication in the interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal Social Science. “Potlatch Justice” examines how restorative justice has come to represent sovereignty and cultural identity for two tribes in southern Oregon, the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua, Siuslaw Indians and the Coquille Indian Tribe. The publication represents one dimension of this lengthy collaboration with both tribes, and incorporates extensive interviews with elders and tribal members.
