we petition the obama administration to: Honor the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 and give "Baby Veronica" (A Cherokee tribal citizen) back to her tribe. Dusten Brown a Iraq Veteran and member of the Federally recognized Cherokee nation (which suffered at Trail of tears) had his daughter taken from him by the state of South Carolina after the child's tribe gave Dustin's family joint custody. The state of S.C is refusing to honor the Federal law which covers inter state matters which is covered in the United states' constitution. Google "Baby Veronica" and then sign this petition to make the State of South Carolina HONOR the treaties and Federal laws put in place to protect those that suffered on the Trail of Tears. Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 (ICWA) Federal law that governs jurisdiction over the removal of Native American (Indian) children from their families.

happy for that child. mother has an open adoption and has received no money for her child from that adoptive family. NDN people have been fed a pack of pr lies by cherokee nation attorneys and the browns. that whiteboy tried to use his nosebleed cherokee status and lost. he was deployed because of a plea bargain involving drug was army or prison. prior to this case the browns had no real affiliation with the cn beyond cdib's used to utilize ihs. NDN people were played for suckers. the browns are a disgrace. a disrespect to the children icwa was intended for. a shameful reminder of how whites become NDN when it is convenient. they didn't care how the outcome might effect NDN people. they didn't care about you, your children or your grandchildren. the cherokee nation's motives are suspect as well. let that little girl go home.

I am so glad to hear that she will be going back to her family in south Carolina. She should have never been taken from them. If her biological father wasn't around when the mother was pregnant I don't think its right for him to be able to take care of her now. Everyone has their own opinion and this is mine. Its really the mothers decision. She is the one that carried that child for 9 months and she decided what would be the best life for that little girl. And just because the mother gave up her child doesn't mean she cant ever see her. Its what you call an open adoption!

What the heck?! She's missed "being a part of their lives"? And she can't wait to see the baby? I thought she gave her up? Why is she still in the picture? What type of deal is happening between her and the pre_adoptive couple? It feels sick that an actual biological father wants his kid and the pre-adoptive couple are fighting him. Twisted. BTW ICWA has nothing to do with race or ethnicity and everything to do with political government. Our Nations are sovereign and the relationship between the USA and any of our "tribal" Nations is government to government. This couple tried to get around federal laws protecting Native children and succeeded.

It's about time they see past race and culture and see the best interest of the child and uphold a mothers wish.
