Parental Rights (1/20/00)

Date of this Version

January 2000


The plight of the young Cuban refugee, Elian Gonzales, has America wondering what rights and powers do parents have when it comes to their children; but it's a question that Native America has been dealing with for years. In the past federal agencies have stripped Indian children away from their parents for menial and benign reasons and sent them off to boarding schools and foster homes. Can this still happen today? What protections do parents have if the US government feels they are not good parents? Guests TBA.
