Abstract:

Program focuses on foster care in Massachusetts with an emphasis on the proper placement of Native American children. Host Barbara Barrow-Murray speaks with guests Pam Colorado (a social worker and Ph. D. candidate at Brandeis), Kevin Brown (a Child Welfare Development Specialist for the Department of Public Welfare, Boston), Linda Lappen (a Co-supervisor for the Home Finding Unit of Boston's Welfare Department), and Suzanne Letendre (Director of the Foster Care Program at the Boston Indian Council) to discuss if it matters if a child is not placed within their family unit, if there a need for placement within a family of the same cultural background as the child's, the process by which children are placed with families, if relatives or foster families of the same ethnic background are always considered first, the problems facing Native Americans in terms of developing foster care programs, and whether or not the inability to place a child with the same ethnic group threatens the survival of a culture as a whole. Program includes previously filmed interviews with each of the guests, as well as Native American young adults who were raised by non-Native American families. Program includes a 'Third World Connection' segment (in which theories related to the original inhabitants of North America are discussed) and 'man on the street' interviews conducted by Barrow-Murray to assess whether or not the 'average' person feels it is a problem when minority children are adopted by white families.
