Indian Child Welfare: Programs and Services

"Look behind you. See your sons and your daughters. They are your future. Look farther, and see your sons' and your daughters' children and their children's children even unto the Seventh generation. That's the way we were taught. Think about it: you yourself are a Seventh Generation!"

--Leon Shenandoah

Eleven federally recognized Indian tribes, bands, or communities are located within the boundaries of the State of Wisconsin. Each of these tribes, bands, or communities has an Indian Child Welfare Director who is the primary contact for ICWA inquiries.
