Greetings ICWA Advocates:


The Oklahoma Indian Child Welfare Association (OICWA) is excited to announce the dates for the 15th Annual OICWA Conference, November 29th, 30th & December 1st of 2022!   The theme of this year’s conference is “Protectors of the Sacred Circle”


The goal and focus of the conference is to increase knowledge and promote the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 (ICWA) and Oklahoma Indian Child Welfare Act of 1982 (OICWA) through practices, laws, policies, historical reference, trauma resilience, tribal sovereignty, cultural preservation and services. 


Ultimately, our purpose is to facilitate collaboration efforts through education with Tribal Child Welfare and all disciplines, such as state agencies, behavioral health, law enforcement, officers to the court, juvenile justice, and therapeutic care. This year’s conference will offer three full days of intensive ICWA training. Day one will provide intentional sessions dedicated to foster care training for workers and foster parents providing care for American Indian children.


The Oklahoma Indian Child Welfare Association is seeking support through sponsorships to assist OICWA in offsetting the cost of expenses related to the production of the conference to include nationally recognized keynote speakers, venue rental, audio/visual equipment rental, conference materials and cultural demonstrations. 


Sponsorship opportunities available for this year’s conference are detailed on the attached page.  OICWA will accept monetary donations of any size. OICWA is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
