In many American Indian tribes it was understood that beliefs and attitudes are the form into which reality flows. Among these cultures it was believed that acts of crime and violence were evidence of a spiritual malady, an illness resulting from a disconnected sense of self. The origin of this illness existed beyond the individual manifesting symptoms, it extended outward to also reveal a larger social deficit. It was and is understood that criminals are not born they are socially constructed.
