RIVERA COHEN, Aracely  y  CASTRO PERALTA, Elia. Restorative Justice for the Yaqui Population on the Border between Mexico and the United States: The Yaquis Living along the River and the Yaquis Living in Southern California. Rev. pueblos front. digit. [online]. 2021, vol.16, e537.  Epub 06-Mar-2023. ISSN 1870-4115.

This paper presents a theoretical model of restorative justice for the case of the Yaquis or Yoeme communities living along the River and those in Southern California. It analyzes the relationship that this ethnic community has with its peers on both sides of the border regarding a claim for restorative justice. The analysis is based on a perspective that reveals the cooperation existing between the Yaquis living in Mexico and those in the United States of America (USA) regarding a defense of their rights to their lands, territories, and other natural resources. It also addresses the legal difficulties they face given that they live in two different countries. Throughout the paper, the reader is presented with the strategies used by the Yaquis living on both sides of the border in order to gain access to their sacred resources such as land, water, and culture. The findings presented in this paper include an analysis of the international, national, and local instruments that endorse restorative justice for indigenous peoples. The paper concludes that provided that the States involved adhere to the recommendations issued by international, national, and traditional bodies, restorative justice will ensure reparations for the violations to the human and collective rights to which the Yaquis are entitled.
