    The fight against the Indian Child Welfare Act is much bigger than a few custody cases, or even the entire adoption industry. We follow the money, and our investigation leads us to a powerful group of corporate lawyers and one of the biggest law firms in the country.

Too all my relations

ABTD9929 ,

a MUST LISTEN

I am recommending this podcast to EVERYONE I know. This is required listening for anyone who wants to understand how any repair the United States tried to make with Native Nations is being deconstructed one crooked judge and lawyers at a time.

Wiyot79 ,

Hou’ thank you

I felt this over here in Humboldt County CA, in Wiyot country. This podcast gave me goosebumps!!! Very real talk.

This reminds me of the time I went to national Congress of American Indians back in 2011 and Seen a us fighting over crumbs, with very little unity…
We need to unite, as one ✌🏽 one people with a common interest and goal to protect our elders and children.

To the addicted,

I got too send love n prayers out to all the grandparents out there taking care of there grand-baby’s, as they are praying that they live long enough to raise them kids… while the kids parents are out they’re lost in this materialistic world, facing addictions issues.

Sincerely,

Our elders prayer

Aka wiyát coonskin people
