Coreena Patnaude started this petition to Turtle Mountain Tribal Council and

This Petition is for the purpose of requesting a review of the Turtle Mountain Tribal Child Welfare Office.  We ask that an independent group conduct a thorough investigation into the policies and practices of the T.M. Child Welfare Office, including but not limited to the following:

-The Child Welfare Office’s implementation of Tribal, State, and Federal laws into their policies and regulations and adherence thereof.  Especially those  involving the placement of children. (I.e., extended family, kinship homes, and foster care homes)

-Thorough and proper investigation into accounts of child abuse to ensure that all parties civil rights are protected and to prevent false accusations that damage the reputation and future of Tribal members. 

-A full accounting of financial records, especially in the area of monthly distribution of money for the care of foster children. 

Findings will be without influence by the Tribal Council, not any employees, nor by any employees past, present, or future of the Child Welfare Office.  Findings will also be considered public documents, without violating confidentiality of any and all clients of the foster care program.  These public documents will be made available to Tribal members at any time upon request.
