Native American Heritage Month: No More Stolen Children

In recognition of Native American Heritage Month, Heather Bruegl, a decolonial art and education expert, presented “No More Stolen Children: A history of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) and the fight to save it,” an overview of how the ICWA came into existence and the potential impact of the current Supreme Court case on tribal sovereignty. We worked in partnership with the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh (UWO)-Fox Valley Student Center and Diversity Office to host the speaker virtually for an in-person group of attendees at the UWO-Fox Valley campus. We heard from the University staff and students how meaningful the program was and how much they appreciated the partnership and programming. Attendees stated they knew little about this topic and appreciated the information. Friends’ funds provided the honorarium for this presenter.
