NARF responds to South Carolina Supreme Court decision regarding Baby Veronica

Native American Rights Fund logo


The Native American Rights Fund (NARF) joins with the Brown family, the Cherokee Nation, the National Congress of American Indians, the National Indian Child Welfare Association, and many others inside and outside of Indian Country who are expressing their outrage over the South Carolina Supreme Court’s imprudent order effectively granting the adoption of Veronica without due process of law or a hearing to determine what is in her best interest.

NARF encourages all of the state attorneys general, adoption and child welfare organizations, past and present members of Congress, religious organizations, and others who submitted briefs in this case to express their concern and join with Indian Country to take all necessary steps to stop the forced removal of this Indian child from her Indian father, her Indian family, and her Indian community.
