Welcome Esther Altvater Attean and Misty Sioux Little to the show. We will be discussing the Indian Child Welfare Act and the effects it has within the communities.
The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) of 1978 is Federal law that governs the removal and out-of-home placement of American Indian children. The law was enacted after recognition by the Federal Government that American Indian children were being removed from their homes and communities at a much higher rate than non-Native children. ICWA established standards for the placement of Indian children in foster and adoptive homes and enabled Tribes and families to be involved in child welfare cases. Find resources related to ICWA, including Tribal, State, and local examples .
These communities have suffered greatly from many laws and ACTS that removed children from their communities. This resulted in many children being removed from their Tribes via religion, Boarding schools, adoption and protective services. These efforts are contributing to the continued genocide of these people. Each community has its own historical trauma and history of the government attempting to assimilate their children into society at the complete loss of their culture and identity. They will always come for the children so it is very important for use to understand the tools they use when they come.

Cindi Wood, JD and John Chambers, JD, both attorneys from Casper, Wyoming with experience representing parents in child welfare cares, will present an overview of the Guidelines for Attorneys Representing Parents in Abuse, Neglect, and Termination of Parental Rights Cases. The Guidelines are available online on the CJP website - www.courts.state.wy.us/CJP.aspx. The Guidelines for Attorneys Representing Parents in Abuse, Neglect, and Termination of Parental Rights Cases have been developed with CJP support and adopted by the Wyoming Children’s Justice Project Advisory Council. Both Ms. Wood and Mr. Chambers served on the CJP Parent Legal Representation Committee that drafted the Guidelines. Presentation handouts will be available at the CJP Training Series tab one day prior to the session, at the same site, under the “CJP Training Series” tab.

Dona Playton, J.D., University of Wyoming College of Law, will present “Overlap of Domestic Violence and Child Protection.” Domestic violence, child abuse and juvenile delinquency are so intertwined that it is imperative we have the knowledge and strategies to address them. This presentation will describe the risks to children who live in homes where domestic violence is present, as well as interventions and strategies to end the cycle of violence and keep children and adult victims safe.
Jill E. Kucera, Senior Assistant Attorney General, will review recent Supreme Court decisions and laws passed or amended in the 2012 Legislative Session that affect child welfare in the State of Wyoming.
The child welfare system - cash, food, and medical assistance for basic needs and child protective services – provides vital services to the neediest children. However, because of institutionalized human behavior, the Ugly Fact is that the system hurts as much as it helps. Children whose mother receives assistance with basic needs are stigmatized, have few resources, and often experience the associated low-stimulation environment that is correlated with difficulty learning, school failure, and criminal behavior. For children who experience foster care placement as part of child protective services intervention, their prognosis is bleak. The children rarely receive appropriate services needed to address the consequences of trauma and disrupted parental attachment bonding, which places them at great risk for being homeless, addicted, and incarcerated. Join The Ugly Facts With Dr. Jenn as we shine the search light on the role of the American Child Welfare System in the prison pipeline!
