Way past time to do away with that sovereign nation thing!
Where is the best interest of the child considered rather than simply removing a
child based on a law ? Isn't it more than ironic that the child now lives
with non- Native Americans ? A very sad case.
Native American tribes are a sovereign nation and can take custody any time they
want. I would hope that child services notified the foster parents of this from
the beginning. Usually they just watch and see until it comes to a termination
of parental rights, then they want custody to place with someone else in the
tribe. Would be better if they would take custody from the beginning rather
then do this to the child and potential adoptive family.Breaks my heart to
see the pictures, this couple clearly loved this child.
