Adoptive parents embrace tribal, communal spirit
Among Native American tribes, there’s a sharing, communal spirit, and the saying “It takes a village to raise a child” rings true.
“Other people raise other people’s children all the time,” Zachery Desjarlais said. “It doesn’t have to be a nefarious reason, either.”
Adoption, too, taps into that cooperative heritage getting passed down from generation to generation.
