Illustrations of the contradictions that exist between values in social work discourse and practice, within the context of power and social control will be examined, utilizing a case example: early federal legislation, the Indian Adoption Project 1958-1967, and contemporary Indian Child Welfare Act. Through the use of a critical analysis, this paper will highlight the ways in which Native American families were not in a position to combat social welfare intrusion within a historical context.
