This is bullshit, and the Choctaw Tribe can kiss my ass

Six-year-old Lexi has only ever know Summer and Rusty Page as her parents.

But any day now the Santa Clara, California, child could be legally ripped from her loving foster home despite Rusty and Page's fight to keep her with them.

Lexi is one-and-a-half per cent Choctaw Native American.

Because of the 'Indian Child Welfare Act' - a federal law passed in the 1970's aimed to protect the best interests of Native American children - she must live with Native American parents.

Choctaw Tribe says
'The Choctaw Nation desires the best for this Choctaw child.

'The tribe's values of faith, family and culture are what makes our tribal identity so important to us.

'Therefore we will continue to work to maintain these values and work toward the long-term best interest of this child,' it said.
The Choctaw tribe has decided to place Lexi with extended non-blood relatives in Utah, who are not Native Americans and will not be living on the reservation.
You miserable, shitbrained bastards.  You don't suck;  you would have to WORK HARD to rise to the level of sucking.

That's outrageous.
By their standards, I should be living on the Cree reservation. My maternal Grandfather was a 1/2 breed Cree and actually did live on a reservation as a child for a while.
That makes me what, 1/16th, 1/32?

Leave the damn kid alone and go spend your time improving the lives of the tribe members who do live there instead of dragging some poor kid back there to live in misery.

Way to go, Choctaw. Suddenly Andrew Jackson looks a lot more reasonable.

I have a grandson who nearly went to someone else even though he was living with a blood relative. His real mother was way too young when he was born so a first cousin took the baby for adoption. It took seven years to resolve this even though the father, who is Choctaw, and his parents had no objection to the adoption.
