    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. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/honor-indian-child-welfare-act-1978-and-give-baby-veronica-cherokee-tribal-citizen-back-her-tribe/K0fp6ZmY
