    • Abstract:
      There are limited data on kinship care in American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. This study provides a systematic review of related quantitative and qualitative literature. Key findings include: (1) there are disparities in the rates of kinship care placement for children who are AI/AN compared to those who are not AI/AN; (2) existing research focuses on grandparents who are AI/AN and are caring for grandchildren; and (3) qualitative studies show there is a striking depth of emotional connection between these grandparents and grandchildren.
