One more thing that tribes take away from Native Americans they disenroll from their tribes. THE RIGHT TO FOSTER Native Children. I had a discussion in the comments of Stephanie Benally who is on the Board of Directors at Utah Tribal Relief Foundation putting out a call for help under ICWA.
Stephanie's post included this urgent message
There is an immediate need for a kinship/foster Native American home for a newborn baby.
The potential Native American kinship parent needs to be an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. The parent needs to be able to pass a background check and be a Utah resident.
|NOT IN UTAH|
DO not shoot the messenger here, Stephanie was putting out a call for help. Looks like Utah's Mixed Blood Uintah can't help. When Pechanga disenrolled us, they said, "we aren't saying you're not native" well we were UNRECOGNIZED by the feds.
