Tribal Child Welfare in the News - NRC4Tribes

Attorney Lisa F. Cook, a member of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, delivered a presentation explaining the goals of ICWA, passed in 1978, along with ways she said the law has failed to work.
“The core of ICWA is designed to prevent the breakup of the Indian family, or to reunite the Indian family as soon as possible,†she said in an interview after the presentation.
She said the law mandates notice to a family before a child is removed, and it facilitates the transfer of cases to tribal courts. If a child does have to be removed, she added, the law requires that the child’s placement follow a priority list.
...
During her talk, Cook said circumstances sometimes make it hard for ICWA to work effectively. She mentioned, for instance, times in which adoption agencies and other organizations had sent notice to families on reservations, but because of incorrect spelling or transposed numbers, the information never reached the family.
Cook said the law had been affected by court interpretation, as well.
“The Indian Child Welfare Act is a good law,†she said. “However, interpretation of it in state court is making a bunch of lousy laws.â€
