NIJC ICWA Online Classroom
Welcome to the NIJC Online Classroom!
This online classroom uses the Moodle platform which allows for real-time and asynchronous classrooms. We suggest that you go to the classroom category entitled Distance Learning and take the course titled Technology Tips for Distance Learning Success before you begin the Indian Child Welfare Act training courses. This course will increase your understanding of how Moodle works and enable you to take full advantage of the course offerings.
The courses offered on this site are designed for tribal and non-tribal social workers, child welfare workers, children's services providers, youth advocates, Department of Justice professionals, law enforcement professionals, elected tribal officials, tribal leaders, and all tribal staff or community partners who represent tribal interests in serving Native American children who have been abused/neglected or are at risk.
In this site, you will find training courses that were developed through a grant from the California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) and the California Department of Social Services (CDSS). The content is specific to California and federal rules governing the implementation of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). These training courses are designed to increase the availability of resources to and capacity among tribes and tribal organizations that work with Indian Children and who work with ICWA cases.
Thank you for your participation!
“Let us put our minds together and see what life we can make for our children.” —Sitting Bull, Hunkpapa Lakota Chief & Holy Man—
