Perhaps public social workers may be at fault for not following proper notification guidelines in some cases?

The Cherokee Nation were in direct contact with the public social workers who contacted them. Your situation sounds much different than cases like the Brown's or my Nieces. There is no law infringement readily known in the case you described.

They might had been notified but was it a lawyer just for the kids call you or someone else? Was the news reporters there EVERYDAY talking about it like they are all focused on this case?? Have you ever been to the tribe and asked for ANY kind of assistance? If not maybe you should try....your experience will probably change your thinking. This guy just pops up out of blue 2 years into this girl being born and all of sudden its "breaking news". My sister (also Cherokee) adopted my niece and nephew (full blood Cherokee children) when she married their dad and when mother left them to go to California. The tribe did NOTHING to help her, they told her she could fight it in County court and pay for her own attorney. Where was ICW when she wanted these kids?? They should of just said "Okay since all parties (my sister ad the kids) are full blood and IF they really think hertiage is SOOO important. The adoptive parents in the Brown case never said they wanted to take her hertiage away from her...they just want to love her as they did the first 2 years of her life when her Dad WASNT there.

You must be a poser. My family lives in California and when adoption was being discussed regarding my nieces as their Mother (my Sister) passed away, the Cherokee Nation were notified before we were. Wado.

I would like to know why the courts ordered a attorney for this little girl, when there are many, many other Cherokee children going through the same thing? Cherokee Nation is wrong. I am a member of this tribe and live in Tahlequah. Cherokee Nation never once offered a lawyer for any other "regular" tribal members so why should she be any different? It's not fair to other tribal members and now...we should be able to use Cherokee Nation lawyers for our business to. It's only fair. Bill Baker wants to make himself look good by helping this little with all the while he's hurting other members. I hope he understands that this one child and her family isn't as strong a vote as the other 500,000 tribal members he wouldn't do this for come election time.
