    Social workers seized a hysterical six-year-old girl from the home of her white foster family on Monday because she is part Native American. Lexi was only 17 months old when she became a part of the family.

    The child, Lexi, sobbed, clinging to her foster father Rusty Page as he reluctantly fought through a crowd to hand the child over to the Department of Children and Families in Santa Clarita.

    In a disturbing video from KTLA, Lexi screamed, begging Rusty, 'don't let them take me away', as she was removed from her family.

    As Lexi was placed in the back of a black car with government workers, her foster mother Summer Page burst from the home screaming 'I love you, Lexi'.



    Lexi, who has only ever know the Pages as her parents, 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 and will be placed with her biological father's relatives.

    It says the little girl's extended family has been trying to get custody of her for 3 years...they are not Native American and the foster family has had her for 5 years

    WTF? Haven't Indians learned by now that we steal their shit? This is the way God wants it.

    With the lame joke out of the way, that's very very sad. I don't know what the solution would be. But I have great sympathy for that little girl. That's just awful.

    I saw this story on the local news tonight. Just heartbreaking. That poor family was devastated.

    I don't know if the reporter had her facts right or not, but she said this little girl was 1.5% Choctaw. Sounds like a good reason to rip her away from the only family she's ever known. :rolleyes:

    This is an absolute travesty. She is six. She has been in foster care for five years at least. Where has the tribe been to this point? As an adoptive parent, I am well aware of the legalese and ins and outs of ICWA, but 1.5% wouldn't get her a share of the casino profits in any tribe out there. To put this into perspective, to be 1.5% Choctaw means that she is 1/64th, meaning that exactly one of her 64 great great great great grandparents was Choctaw. If you average 30 years between generations, this person was born around 1830 and almost certainly has been dead for over one hundred years.

    Where this will be problematic will be when the tribes start pushing for dna ancestry testing for any children in foster care. Most of us could probably be found to have a few drops of Native American blood in us somewhere. I see this frankly as a money grab. A higher tribal census means a bigger check from the BIA.

    My brother is Native American...a while back he and his wife tried to adopt a Native American baby through a native american court and it was a fucking fiasco so he just gave up. It was not cheap and he and his wife were perfect candidates. If you are not blood relative and don't live on the rez "fuck you"...crazy and dumb. IMHO.

    The Indian Child Welfare Act was a bill pushed by liberal Democratic congressman Mo Udall, who lobbied liberal Democratic President Jimmy Carter to sign the bill into law.
