Native America Calling: Mixed decision for the Indian Child Welfare Act
Your National Electronic Talking Circle
Monday, April 12, 2021

A federal appeals court struck down some previsions of the Indian Child Welfare Act while upholding others in a complex and sometimes divided 325 page ruling.

ICWA advocates express concern about far-reaching implications of the decision by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. At the same time, they find some things to cheer. Those working against ICWA are calling it a partial victory.

At issue is the long-standing ability of tribes to keep Native foster children in Native families.

Native America Calling will learn more about the most recent decision and what it means for the future of ICWA.
