Alpha News had more details to add:
A Democratic Minnesota legislator said it is a form of “genocide” for “white Christians” to adopt Native American children.
“I’m sick of white Christians adopting our babies and rejoicing. It’s a really sad day when that happens. It means the genocide continues,” Rep. Heather Keeler, DFL-Moorhead, said on Facebook.
“If you care about our babies, advocate against the genocide! Help the actual issues impacting Indigenous parents, stop stealing our babies and changing their names under the impression that you are helping,” she continued.
She then ended her post with: “White saviors are the worst!”
Keeler is the lead author of a bill to incorporate provisions of the federal Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) into state law. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling this spring on a case that challenges the constitutionality of ICWA, according to a House research summary.
Keeler’s bill seeks to modify the Minnesota Indian Family Preservation Act with provisions from ICWA.
