Rate this:
This is one-of-a-kind guide to the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978, enacted to ameliorate the problem of the removal of Native American children from their homes by state welfare agencies and private agencies and to ensure that those children would be placed in homes that reflect their cultures and traditions. Now revised and updated, it examines case law from courts around the country-this is not an issue confined to reservations and their border towns. It explains the history of the act and how is applied, as well as its procedural requirements. Includes appendices on CD-ROM.
