Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $225,000)

The Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians' CRAFT project will serve youth ages 12 to 17. The project will serve 600 juveniles over three years. The project will be located on the Red Lake Reservation in Minnesota. The setting of the project will be the large common room of St. John's in the Wilderness Church, centrally located in Red Lake. The CRAFT workshop will be an after school program of diversion and restitution. It will very likely extend into weekends and even overnight as it grows. The original CRAFT program took part in both spiritual and traditional seasonal encampments as part of its therapeutic activities. CRAFT will provide an alternative for sentencing juveniles and will provide restitution activities. The project will strengthen the tribal juvenile justice system by adding a cadre of 20 judges who will sit in panels of five for two days every quarter.
