Event Dates
All times are Eastern Time unless noted otherwise.

This course is a five-part virtual learning series hosted by the Tribal Youth Resource Center and presented by the Hon. Pat Sekaquaptewa. The course will provide a virtual learning experience to support the development or enhancement of Tribal juvenile justice codes, policy, and procedures. This course is open to all interested communities.

This session will survey the rights provisions and protections within the Model Indian Juvenile Code. Participants will engage in and discuss evidence provisions and the implications of more clearly defining processes and procedures related to confessions, interrogations, and admissions. 

The session will also cover the potential for increased statutory rights for juveniles within a Tribal juvenile justice system (from the Indian Civil Rights Act to the Model Indian Juvenile Code provisions), as well as the right to counsel.
