PROTECTING CHILDREN, PRESERVING FAMILIES:Lessons from the Indian Child Welfare Act

October 30, 2018

Event sponsored by the Carolyn Reyer Fund for Native American Studies with assistance from: the Department of Political Science, Department of Psychology, College for Education & Human Resources-Child Development & Family Studies Program and School of Social Work.

Dr. Kastelic will address the historic roots of the passage of the Indian Child Welfare Act, in particular, the importance of tribal and cultural affiliation for American Indian and Alaska Native children, and for Indigenous peoples generally. The passage of ICWA, and ongoing measures to see that it is uniformly enforced, are part of overall efforts to prevent Native children from becoming “cultural orphans.” All those who work to protect children and facilitate healthy, functioning families will be able to learn from the example of the strong advocacy provided through the initial passage of ICWA and the important work that continues through the National Indian Child Welfare Assoc. today. Nationwide, many states have seen increases in the percentage of children being removed from their homes due to the co-mingled factors of parental drug abuse and child neglect. Indeed, states that have been heavily impacted by the current opioid crisis, including West Virginia, depend on the skills of effective social workers to protect children and assist in their foster care placement and/or adoption when necessary
