What is the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA)?

The Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) is a federal law that seeks to keep American Indian children with American Indian families.  Congress passed ICWA in 1978 in response to the high number of Indian children being removed from their homes by both public and private agencies.
