"Also at the conference were adult adoptees taken from their families as children, who were looking for their relatives. An Indian adoption association is reportedly in formation to help with these efforts. Indeed, there are thousands upon thousands of Native adoptees. as even today there are 32 states in violation of the 1978 Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). Before the passage of ICWA, 25 percent of all Native children were being adopted by non-Indian families. This must surely rival the "lost generations" of Native Australian children abducted from their families in the 19th and 20th centuries - the difference being that in the U.S. the abductions are still taking place."
