This guide from NICWA is part of their Tribal Leadership Series.
“This document is meant to be guide for tribal leaders on the basic requirements of ICWA, why ICWA
advocacy is important today, different elements of ICWA advocacy, and tools and strategies to enhance
tribal ICWA advocacy. The guide takes the position that tribal advocacy for AI/AN children and families
is essential to the best interests of AI/AN children and families being met. Tribal advocacy can make the
difference for AI/AN families between being lost in a very complex and often confusing system or having
the confidence and resources to successfully engage with state child welfare system.”
