Understanding, engaging, and supporting Native families
In this webinar, presenters provide an introduction to tribes, citizenship, and connection. They discuss tribal sovereignty, significant historical events, and the Indian Child Welfare Act.
They also suggest strategies to support and engage families. When preparing families, presenters encourage the audience to cater their approach and consult with a trusted expert. Other strategies include supporting ceremonial practices and celebrating Native heritage.
This webinar was originally designed as part of a capacity-building effort for a specific state. The state granted AdoptUSKids permission to make this webinar publicly available.
