One of the most complete surviving collections of Civil War artifacts belonging to an individual Mississippi soldier is the T. Otis Baker Collection at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History. The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) is a 40-year old remedial statute that protects Indian children, families and tribes. Remember that EU-law provides that once the union citizen has exercised Treaty Rights(ie has left her country of origin to reside in another member state)upon return to his or her country of origin, she carry her community law right with her.
In an unprecedented ruling that threatens Native American children and families, U.S. District Court Judge Reed ‘Connor in the Northern District of Texas declared the federal Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) unconstitutional in an opinion inÂ Brackeen et. al. v. Zinke, filed October 4, 2018.
Emboldened by theÂ Adoptive Couple v. Baby GirlÂ decision in 2013, these anti-ICWA forcesâ€”led by the adoption industry, religious coalitions, and a conservative think tankâ€”have spent years bringing forth suit after suit in courts throughout the country, sometimes even using identical briefs in different forums, all in the attempt to have ICWA declared unconstitutional.
