The mission of the Indigenous Peacemaking Initiative (IPI) is to support Native peoples in restoring sustainable peacemaking practices by:

  • Maintaining a database of tribal peacemaking codes and/or policies
  • Facilitating training
  • Providing technical assistance
  • Engaging in advocacy

We have focused our initial efforts on the creation of the clearinghouse, conducting needs assessment of peacemaker resources, and developing a sustainable business model for the program. Most recently, we are in the process of analyzing the results of a national survey of peacemaking needs in Indian communities. Approximately 230 survey forms were filled out and returned. You can see the results of that survey as well as an analysis of those results. NARF staff attorneys and members of the Advisory Committee also continue to discuss ways to increase federal support for indigenous peacemaking systems.
