Indian Child Welfare Act

The Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 (ICWA) is a Federal law that governs jurisdiction over the removal of Native American (Indian) children from their families in custody, foster care and adoption cases.

It gives tribal governments exclusive jurisdiction over children who reside on, or are domiciled on a reservations. It gives concurrent, but presumptive jurisdiction over foster care placement proceedings for Native American children who do not live on the reservation

Aug 18, 2015 - Indian Child Welfare Act: A Historical and Legal Context Part 2 by Brit Reed

On July 8, 2015, Indian Country Today Media Network reported that Phoenix, Arizona based based Goldwater Institute announced filing a lawsuit title A. D. v. Washburn that claims that the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) of 1978 quote, “discriminates against native children.” This, sadly, is one of many lawsuits filed that are directly attacking ICWA.

This three part series aimed to create a greater understanding of ICWA for both natives and non-natives so that we might be better able to protect our children and strengthen the law were there is need for it to be strengthened. Part one of the series discussed how the U.S. government transitioned from a policy of taking our children and assimilating through boarding school to a policy of assimilating them through adoption. Part one also briefly discussed how ICWA came out of one of the fiercest and most successful battles by Native communities to protect Native American children from the predatory grasp of child welfare agencies. This second part will outline titles I, II, III, and IV of ICWA and discuss what it means. The third part of this series will discuss the state of ICWA since the passing of the Act in 1978.

In spite of the fact that ICWA has been in place for nearly 40 years, many child welfare agencies, courts, and the general public have little understanding of what the law means and how to utilize correctly and efficiently.

Excerpts:
Gila River Indian Community announces positive COVID-19 case
Shondiin Silversmith, Arizona Republic  Published 5:12 p.m. MT March 24, 2020

The Gila River Indian Community announced two positive cases of COVID-19 from patients who visited a Gila River Health Care facility.

Gila River Indian Community Gov. Stephen Roe Lewis made the announcement Monday in a video posted on Facebook. He said both patients went to the hospital showing symptoms of the new coronavirus. No details on which Gila River Health Care facility the patients went to were provided.

One positive case is a citizen of the Gila River Indian community and resident of the community's district 1 in Pinal County. The second is from a different tribe residing outside Gila River Indian community, but went to Gila River Health Care for treatment. No details were provided on which tribe the second patient belonged to.

Both patients are currently in isolation at home, a press release says.

Gila River Indian Community is the second tribe in Arizona to report a case of COVID-19 among citizens on tribal land. The other is Navajo Nation, with 39 confirmed cases.

"We have been doing testing for COVID-19 for some time now," Dr. Anthony Santiago, the chief medical officer for Gila River Health Care, said.

As of Monday, Santiago said Gila River Health Care had received results from 39 tests. The two cases reported are the first that have been positive.

Lewis said, "The bad news is, it is likely that we will see more in the coming days."

The two patients were tested the week of March 16, and results were returned on Monday. Santiago said that Gila River Health Care is working to expand testing and looking for ways to produce faster results for tests they do.

"We are working hard to accelerate our testing capabilities on the reservation," Lewis said. "We've ordered specialized testing equipment from a number of suppliersand we'll put that to use very soon."

Lewis issued an executive order Monday, ordering reduced government functions to only essential employees and prohibiting evictions and utility shut-offs during the pandemic, the news release says.

"We are working 24/7 to stay ahead of the curve on this and will continue to do so as we go forward," Lewis said.

Santiago urged community members to continue washing their hands, avoid going out unless it's necessary and minimizing contact with people.

"Please remember that everyone in the community can help by taking this very seriously," Santiago said. "To protect yourself and loved ones, please come to the hospital if you are ill."

Yes, I saw this. This is devastating to the tribe, especially at this time. They have lived on the land for thousands of years, there is no logic to this.

Governor Kristi Noem’s threat to sue two South Dakota tribes shows the callousness of her coronavirus plan, which seems to encourage exposure and prioritize the economy over the lives of at-risk Natives.
