ICWA (history of this?)
This was created to preserve Native Children in 1978
In the 1950s and 1960s, the Indian Adoption Project placed hundreds of Native American children with white parents.
Native children were being taken from their families and tribes. 25%-35% of all Native children were being removed and about 85% of these children were placed in outside communities and families. Even if their own family was fit to take care of them.
