Indian Child Welfare Act

RavenHawk Radio Presents: Stolen Children

"A conversation about ICWA (Indian Child Welfare Act) and how it effects Native American Children today."

For over 200 years the Settler governments of the US and Canada removed Indian children from their homes and families in an effort to destroy their cultures and force them to assimilate to Settler norms. The idea was that "you must kill the Indian to save the man." Colonized peoples all over this planet no doubt recognize this process and understand the devastation it has caused in Indigenous societies.
