In 2009, Janice Howe’s grandchildren were illegally taken from her by the South Dakota State Department of Social Services. After fighting for a year and a half, she finally got them back.
Last year, her story was told on on NPR. Since then, she’s become an inspiration to hundreds of Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota families with stories just like hers. But the forces they’re up against are strong: deeply-rooted prejudice against Indian tribes and families and a system that gives financial incentives to the state every time they take native children from their homes.
Let Janice Howe—and all the other parents, grandparents, and relatives like her—know that we’re behind them. Use the form at the right side of this page to send a letter of support today.
