Since its passage, ICWA has provided important rights and protections to Indian families. However,

the implementation and interpretation of ICWA has been inconsistent across States; creating

significant gaps in protection. As a result, the Bureau of Indian Affairs promulgated regulations to

address the need for consistent interpretation and implementation of the minimum Federal

standards ICWA provides to ensure that all Indian children and their families receive the same

rights and protections across all States.
