Minnesota is blessed with a rich Native American culture and heritage. The federal Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) and the state Minnesota Indian Family Preservation Act (MIFPA) are laws that provide additional safeguards in adoptions of native children. Among them, a child’s tribe is notified of the adoption and may intervene in the process.
