The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) is integral to protecting the best interests and well-being of American Indian children in Montana.
In 2020, American Indian children made up 9% of the state’s child population and 35% of the children in foster care.
HB 317 is essential for protecting Indigenous children in Montana and tribal sovereignty.
