    What a beautiful story for 3 children who truly needed a good home! ICWA is designed to keep our children together with their Native families, and it is our Native people who have to step up and embrace and hold tight our beautiful babies who need families to love them.

    What a stark example of failure to comply with ICWA–that the family of Quinault’s President would be deemed less suitable than non-Indian families goes to show the prejudice against Indian families. It’s horrible to think of all the qualifying families who don’t have the resources or knowledge of ICWA to challenge these sorts of denials.
