    Cherokee Strengthens Child Custody Laws, Giving Preference to Biological or Tribal Family

    The Cherokee Nation Tribal Council passed a resolution January 13 regarding priority placement of Cherokee children in adoptive and foster care cases. Now biological parents deemed fit are given first preference in adoptive and foster care cases involving Cherokee children. A member of the child’s extended family, other members of the Cherokee Nation or other Native American families would receive next priority in the placement of a child.
