Indian Justice

Show some words

The Indian had no law books. He had the unwritten law. It worked. For instance a man accused of adultery was tried by members of the tribe and if found guilty, he was publicly flogged. If the crime was, repeated he was given a heavier dose and the third time banished.

The methods of dealing with law violators varied greatly among the different tribes.
