Accepted Paper:

Bringing back the children: Native American communities and child welfare since the 1970s  
Celine Planchou (University Paris 7 - Diderot)

Paper long abstract:

Studies showed in the mid 1970s that, in some states, between 25% and 35% of Indian children had been removed from their families by social servcies and placed in non-Indian foster or adoptive families. This paper proposes to examine the different ways - whether cultural, political, or legal - Indian communities have imagined and used to try and reverse the destructive effects of these massive removals since the 1970s.
