Touchstones of Hope: Self-Determination (Part 1)
“Indigenous peoples are in the best position to lead the development of child welfare laws, policies, research, and practice that affects their communities.” — Blackstock, Cross, George, Brown & Formsma, 2006, p.9

Learn about legal and legislative efforts for affirming jurisdiction in caring for Indigenous children in Canada and the United States including available options, rights and responsibilities, and other considerations for those wishing to assert their inherent jurisdiction over child wellbeing and child welfare services.

This dialogue is the third in a seven-part, bi-monthly, dialogue series inviting Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples from the United States and Canada to actively engage in conversations about the five principles that are the foundation of the Touchstones of Hope: self-determination, holistic approach, culture and language, structural interventions, and non-discrimination. The dialogues will explore topics related to the Touchstones principles and how these principles can be applied in the reform of child welfare.
