This episode from the Child Welfare Information Gateway features Kimee Wind-Hummingbird and Alan Rabideau with the National Native Children’s Trauma Center and focuses on ICWA and historical/intergenerational trauma and offers guidance to state workers when engaging native families.

“This episode shares insight from the National Native Children’s Trauma Center (NNCTC) for those caseworkers and agencies that are working or will work with indigenous communities to support children and families. Recognizing how Tribal communities approach child-rearing, community and family structures, justice, and law enforcement—and how those approaches may differ from what caseworkers may view as healthy—is important to developing trusting and supportive relationships.”
