WARRIOR LAWYERS is an inspiring and compelling one-hour documentary that invites viewers into the lives of contemporary Native American role models. It focuses on the under-reported themes of Nation Re-Building, Tribal Justice, and Cultural Revitalization. Through the personal and professional stories of American Indian Attorneys, Tribal Judges, and their colleagues, the program provides an overview of the major historical, governmental, legal, judicial, and intertwining social issues shaping many Federally Recognized Nations today.
Through the exploration of these overarching and foundational Native American issues, the documentary also reveals how traditional Indigenous values and cultural practices can be effectively utilized to face contemporary tribal challenges as well as promote healing and Sacred Justice in many facets of mainstream society at the county, state and federal levels.
