NCAI Welcomes Efforts to Protect American Indian and Alaska Native Children

Published on Mar 27, 2019

NCAI welcomes yesterday’s announcement of a new Presidential Taskforce on Protecting Native American Children in the Indian Health Services (“Task Force”). Like the rest of Indian Country, we are devastated that child predators have been allowed to serve in positions of trust in our communities and have violated our children. We must understand how this was allowed to occur and ensure it never happens again.  NCAI encourages the Task Force to work in Indian Country and consult with tribal nations to find long lasting solutions. NCAI President Jefferson Keel said, “We pray for all of the victims impacted by sexual abuse and victimization in Indian Country, and will continue to fight to ensure that our children have the safe, nurturing environments that they deserve.”
