Who are the 'Lost Children?'

Each year, in the days before Thanksgiving, hundreds of mourners and protestors gather for the Memorial March to Honor Lost Children memorializing Native American children who have been taken from their families and communities and placed in the country's child-welfare system.

The 20th annual March to Honor Lost Children will take place in downtown Sioux City, Iowa, on the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 23. The goal of the march is to raise awareness and ultimately reunite displaced Native American children with their home tribes and families.

Educational Workshop Conference

Attend a virtual workshop Thursday, Nov. 17 and/or a group of workshops Nov. 21-23, and you'll hear from Native American activists and examine the legal and social challenges facing today's Native American children in our country.

Social work Continuing Education Units (CEU) and Continuing Legal Education (CLE) are available for select workshops.
