National Indian Child Welfare Association

National Indian Child Welfare Association
Looking for answers to solvable problems

Dear NICWA Cause Members:

Here's a follow-up article from the 28th Annual "Protecting Our Children" National American Indian Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect.

I hope you have time to read it. The article covers key issues facing Indian children and families as well as the story of Hannah Morrison, Ojibwa, who participated at the conference as a panel speaker. Morrison, 19, has been an Oregon foster child since age 6 when she was removed with her siblings. She has been in 25 placements, including foster homes and group homes. Morrison, who is multi-racial, has never been placed in a Native foster home and just recently learned about her tribal identity and cultural heritage.

Thank you,
Eddie Sherman
Development Manager
