On Friday March 3 we donated $7,580.98 to the ICWA Law Center and are so proud of this initiative. Thank you to everyone who got in on our first round!!
Why does ICWA Matter? The US has a long history of attempting to eradicate Indigenous people which culminated in efforts to deprive Native communities of our greatest resource -our children. (For more info, https://youtu.be/UGqWRyBCHhw)
ICWA is a federal law passed over 40 years ago that recognizes the sovereign status of tribes as political nations vs a race. ICWA is currently being reviewed by the Supreme Court to determine Congress’ power to regulate Native American affairs - a decision is expected by the end of June 2023. To find ICWA unconstitutional has far reaching consequences; to argue that ICWA is a race based law would result in other treaty rights being stripped from Indigenous communities.
What are we doing? We are educating our communities and allies. We are talking with our legislators about state protections for Native children and sovereignty.
