Parenting Native Children

Parenting Native children—whether as a Tribal member or transracial parent—comes with enormous responsibility. Native children depend on adults around them (like you!) to keep them connected to their heritage, land, language and Tribe. Below, Tribal elders and other experts offer guidance to enrich your own parenting wisdom. For general parenting, specialized needs, or other specific topics like Foster Parenting, Talking About Race and Transracial Parenting/Cultural Diversity please reference our many other Resource pages.
