Completing the Circle

With the help of many tribal nations and community partners, “Completing the Circle”, was established, a program that helps foster children, their foster and bio families, and their tribal families travel a path together toward healing.

With a focus on the rich heritage of their tribal nation, “Completing the Circle” strives to raise awareness among these children that they are part of a bigger circle of life, that they are not alone in their journey, and that step by step, they will complete the circle.

The program teaches Native American culture, practices and heritage to Native American foster children in central Oklahoma who are placed in non-Native American foster homes. Their foster parents, and the OKDHS staff charged with caring for the children, also learn about Native American culture. About 100 Native American foster children attended last year’s event. Native American foods, dances, music, arts and history are presented each year.
