Battles over blood quantum and best interests resurface in the untold history of Americas Indian Adoption Era  a time when nearly one-third of children were removed from tribal communities nationwide. Sandy White Hawk was 18 months old when she was taken from her Sicangu Lakota relatives to live with a Christian missionary, where her skin color and cultural heritage were rejected.Reconnection with her Lakota community empowered Sandy to help other Adoption Era survivors restore their cultural identity.Then theres Mark Fiddler, a private adoption attorney and member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa. Mark was catapulted to national recognition for his involvement in the 2013 U.S. Supreme Court case, Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl, which challenged the 1978 Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), a law passed to keep Indian children in Indian homes when possible. Despite being a former proponent of the Act, Mark now finds himself positioned to strike ICWA from the books.In this struggle for the future of tribal child welfare, Mark puts heritage on trial as Sandy helps organize the first annual Welcome Home Ceremony for adopted and foster relatives of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe.
