Understanding the history of family separation policies perpetrated against Native American families and the impacts of intergenerational trauma in the American Indian community is essential to construing and interpreting the Indian Child Welfare Act.
Attend a special showing of an abridged version of the documentary, Blood Memory, which examines the effect of unjust removal policies on Sandy WhiteHawk and other families. Following the film, legal experts will engage in a discussion about ICWA, Brackeen v. Haaland, the landmark case brought by Texas, Louisiana, Indiana and individual plaintiffs alleging the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) is unconstitutional that is set to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court in its October 2022-23 term, and the future of Indian law.
Blood Memory (90 MINUTES)
Through the journey of Sandy White Hawk, Blood Memory examines the forcible removal of Native American children from their families and explores the intergenerational devastation of forced adoption and the restorative power of communal healing. With Sandy’s story and work restoring families as a backdrop, the film examines ICWA and efforts to dismantle it.
– Directed and produced by Drew Nichols
The Future of Indian Law (30 MINUTES)
Our legal experts discuss how the issues raised in Bloody Memory reflect bias in our legal system and how ICWA is used to mitigate this bias. The speakers will also address the broader implications that Brackeen v. Haaland has for Federal Indian Law.
– Judge Stephen L. Smith & Forrest K. Tahdooahnippah
