It's Our Turn to Save Veronica

As many of you know, the South Carolina Supreme Court has ordered that "Baby Veronica" be taken from her Cherokee father and her tribal nation, the Cherokee Nation, and returned to the non-Indian couple who wanted to adopt her. (The adoption was NEVER allowed, though the media has misreported this and misrepresented this many many times.) The South Carolina Supreme Court did not allow due process or take into consideration the best interest of the child.

This issue is far reaching and not just a Cherokee issue. It can and will affect ALL tribal nations.

The Brown family is asking people to contact their legislators and ask them to step in to keep Veronica with her Indian family and nation.

To contact your US Senators -
United States Senate

To contact your US Representatives -
United States House

Please get involved; make calls; and send emails. If we don't join together to do this now, we will lose more of our children in the future.

Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.
