    Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) Background: The federal Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) was passed in 1978 in response to the alarmingly numbers of Indian children being removed from their homes by public and private agencies. Congress’s intent was to “protect the best interests of Indian children and to promote the stability and security of Indian tribes and families” (25 U.S.C. §1902). Among other provisions, ICWA sets federal requirements that apply to state child custody proceedings involving an Indian child who is a member of or eligible for membership in a federally recognized tribe. Presenters: • Vida Castaneda descends from the Chumash, Ohlone, and Zapotec Nations and is a Title IV‐E M.S.W. graduate of UC Berkeley. She was a child protective services worker for the City & County of San Francisco on the sub‐acute (mental health) caseload until 2005, when she joined the Tribal Projects Unit as a court services analyst at the Administrative Office of the Courts, Center for Families, Children & the Courts. Ms. Castaneda routinely provides educational and technical assistance to courts throughout California on the Indian Child Welfare Act initiative and family violence issues in Tribal communities. • Ann Gilmour is an attorney with the Administrative Office of the Courts, Center for Families, Children & the Courts, working with the Tribal Project Unit, which includes the Indian Child Welfare Act initiative. She has nearly 20 years’ experience in Indian law, practicing first in British Columbia, where she handled aboriginal rights and title litigation, and continuing in the field since moving to California in 1999.
