Agency Description: Children are the most important asset of the Bad River Tribe. In them lie the Tribe's future, and in their retention of Chippewa culture lie the preservation of the Tribe's past. Their health, safety, and welfare are paramount to the Tribe. It is the policy of the Tribe to strengthen family structures, to prevent family breakups, and to foster conditions favorable to the growth, spirit, culture, and individuality of each child. A child without knowledge of the past is directionless in the path forward; a child without a nurturing present is denied the strengths that lead to the future. It is the Tribe's policy to favor preventative action over belated reaction, mediation over confrontation, counseling over lecturing, conciliation over punishment - but in all decisions under this code the welfare of the child shall be the ultimate touchstone. The population served is members of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians who reside on the reservation, locally, and nationally. Additionally, the court provides services to non-members who are married to tribal members.
