Out-of-Home Care, Kinship Care, and Permanency
Some Tribes maintain their own out-of-home care systems and some practice “customary adoption” in which the court suspends rather than terminates the parental rights of the birth parents. This allows children to maintain the connection to their birth family and Tribe.
