American Indian Tribal Programs in Child Welfare in Region VIII.
Goodluck, Charlotte; Elpers, Jenny
Designed to develop and to share information and resources on child abuse and neglect, child welfare, and youth services in Region VIII (Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana), the Family Resource Center, a federally funded two year program, has developed a directory containing names, addresses, phone numbers and services offered for tribes represented in Region VIII; tribal programs by state; Indian centers; and Bureau of Indian Affairs area offices. Other information includes a map of Region VIII; a brief explanation of tribal programs; examples of tribal use of language for such terms as child welfare, extended family, adoption, and love; the Chippewa Cree Tribal Code as an example of tribal codes and regulations used by the tribes in developing their programs; and a case study of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribal Child Protection Program as a model for other tribes.
