Film Discussion of Reclaiming Our Children: A Story of the Indian Child Welfare Act (A Native Voices program)
Prior to the passage of the Indian Child Welfare Act in 1978, Native children were placed in foster care at a much higher rate than any other group in the U.S. Please join us for a showing of Reclaiming Our Children, a documentary that examines the impact of the Indian Child Welfare Act, the child welfare system, and the laws, policies, and attitudes that affect Native families. Ruthann Geer, TCC Instructor of Government, and Sharon Wettengel, TCC Assistant Professor of Sociology, will moderate a discussion of the film.
This program is part of the Native Voices exhibition, on display at the Library in ESED 1200 from August 21 to September 27.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) developed and produced Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness. The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, in partnership with NLM, tours the exhibition to America’s libraries.
