Rosalie Clark, BIA social worker, dies at 66
Rosalie Clark, a member of the Red Lake Nation of Minnesota who was a social worker for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, died on January 19. She was 66.

Clark developed an interest in social work while serving in the U.S. Army . She later went on to receive her master's degree in education from the University of Minnesota.

Clark was known for her knowledge of the Indian Child Welfare Act. She served as a consultant on the investigation of the Red Lake school shootings in March 2005.

"She had the best interest of families of Indian children at heart, and that was reflected in her daily relationships," Valerie Vasquez, a fellow BIA social worker, told The Minneapolis Star Tribune.
