On September 6, 2019, the state of North Dakota and four Native American tribal nations signed updated comprehensive agreements to allow the tribes to license foster parents on and off their reservation lands for the care of tribal youth. In addition, the agreement opens the state’s subsidized guardianship program to tribal youth. The agreements are with the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation; the Spirit Lake Nation; the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe; and the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa. The agreements went into place immediately. About 14.2% of North Dakota Children in foster care are considered Tribal Title IV . . .
