Professor Blythe George was awarded a Circle 3 Intergenerational Indigenous Women’s Fellowship from the Spirit Aligned Leadership Program. Through this opportunity, she is facilitating an intergenerational knowledge transfer project between herself and Judge Abby Abinanti, the Chief Justice of the Yurok Tribal Court and the first tribal woman to be a member of the California State Bar.
Together, Prof. George and the Yurok Tribal Court have founded the Yurok Data Repository and Modeling Center. Under Prof. George’s leadership, this center centralizes the Court’s ongoing research efforts on criminal justice and policing reform and is the first tribally-housed justice policy research center in the nation.
