Government Reference and International Publications of the Center For World Indigenous Studies :

Excerpt
Excerpt: Whereas, our children are our most valuable resource and insure the survival of all Indian tribes in the United States, Canada and Mexico, Whereas, state assumption of jurisdiction pursuant to P.L. 83-280, and inappropriate actions of non-Indian public and private social agencies has resulted in a high percentage of Indian children being placed in non-Indian adoption and foster homes, thus depriving them of their natural parents and their cultural heritage, Whereas, many children are removed to distant locations without tribal or urban Indian organization protection, allowing them to be financially and psychologically exploited, causing mental anguish to the child; the natural parents and the extended family, Whereas, many families are never re-united because children cannot be located, forcing Indian children to grow up never knowing who they are, now, therefore, be it resolved, that the National Congress of American Indians establish an International, Intertribal child welfare compact.
