Dr. John G. Hansen, Dr. Teresa A. Booker, and Dr. John E. Charlton have expanded the breadth, depth and scope of Walking With Indigenous Philosophy: Justice and Addiction Recovery (2nd ed.) making it a multidisciplinary, international and cross cultural examination of a restorative justice based approach, that at its heart draws upon the wisdom inherent within Indigenous cultures, in order to question hierarchical and heavily one-sided disease based understanding to addiction recovery.
This second edition continues to advocate a model of restorative justice, saturated throughout by an Indigenous philosophy of holism and healing through inclusion and education, when working with those upon the margins, in order to appreciate and honour the whole person.
Justice is understood as a concept that must be based upon, and within, the recognition of the other. It is from within this recognition of the other that accountability, as a healing endeavour, must find its grounding. The voices of Cree Elders indigenous to northern Manitoba, Indigenous Justice Workers, a female African-American Assistant District Attorney, and both individuals in recovery and criminal offenders from multiple geographical locals are all heard.
