Frank LaMere is a prominent Indian child welfare advocate and director of Four Directions Community Center, a Native nonprofit in Sioux City, Iowa. He called for a federal investigation into South Dakota's foster care system and predicted that this latest situation may become South Dakota's Penn State. "This is a scandal of the highest order," said LaMere.
They always have," said LaMere, a member of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. He added that tribes share responsibility for the exodus of Native children into care. "Many of our tribal leaders have been lax in protecting our greatest resource-our children."
LaMere charged that the Indian children's odyssey through the foster care system as it unfolded in the most recent South Dakota abuse case is not an anomaly.
"As outrageous as it is, it is the sad reality for Native children in South Dakota and around the country," said LaMere.
