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.

Description taken from: https://amiracle42sisters.wordpress.com/2015/02/17/bring-baby-jaxon-home/
The Jaxon Navarro Gilmore case is a tragic case. His Maternal Grandmother Jessica Navarro-Gilmore, has her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and loves and has the ability to care for her grandson, baby Jaxon. The Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) is blocking her from doing so, while this medically frail child is in a foster care home with strangers. Jessica already has custody of her granddaughter with the approval of the same agency, (DCF), that is blocking her from having Jaxon home in a loving caring family environment. Jessica adopted her granddaughter from DCF who clearly had no concerns of her parenting. Her granddaughter is healthy and thriving in her Grandmother’s care.
Jaxon is Blackfoot Indian and Taino Indian with loving family ready, willing and able to step up and provide the necessary care for him. The only rational reason that Jaxon is being kept from re-joining his loving family is the funding he can bring to the state from contracts with certain hospitals and providers.
Two years ago Jessica was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after the sudden and tragic loss of her daughter. Jessica’s young granddaughter was adopted by Jessica less than 2 years ago in the State of Connecticut with no issues whatsoever, despite her diagnosis of PTSD. Just as her condition in no way affects her ability to care for and love her granddaughter, neither would it affect her ability to care for baby Jaxon.
