Abstract In the United States, communities have always played a role in the production of justice. However, the size and nature of that role has changed dramatically over time. In pre-colonial Native American society, the responsibility for resolving disputes or addressing offenses often fell on the disputants themselves: the victim and offender, along with their families and extended communities, determined guilt and the appropriate response. In a related vein, early European settlers in the United States depended on ordinary citizens for important safety and justice functions, including participating in volunteer police patrols and on juries.
