Circle Peacemaking

Our communities utilized the Circle process for many things with different methods, names, and protocol.  It is vital to create balance in our communities and support overall health and wellness.  The circle is not only approved by our Ancestors, but is also an evidence-based tool that has been proven a useful tool in juvenile delinquency, alcohol/substance abuse, and conflict resolution.

Get Involved

The Resource Basket is seeking new membership in our Circle Peacemaking Advisory Committee, a small group of statewide Circle Keepers that meets quarterly and works to guide the circle training initiative.  The Circle Advisory Committee attends and co-facilitates at the circle training and conducts daily debriefing meetings with members after each training day.  The Circle Advisory Committee members are working towards increasing the use of a traditional method towards conflict resolution, restorative justice, and health and wellness in everyday life.

This committee has been vital to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the Resource Basket’s circle training and technical assistance efforts.

If you are interested in joining, please contact:  Tara Stiller, Program Manager

Join us and become a Circle Peacemaking Committee member!
