Wakeem’s Story: Finding Connection

The Tribal STAR Digital Stories contains personal accounts of being touched by the child welfare system. Wakeem’s Story: Finding Connection is an account of a challenged Tribal youth who is reconnecting with heritage and tribal relations.

After you have viewed the video, please take a moment to answer these reflection questions.

At what point did Phil stop being just a good social worker and become like a family to Wakeem (“his stationary point”)?

In what ways did Susan and Phil work to connect Wakeem with his culture?

Why was it important for Wakeem to be connected to services such as the Regional Center? How will this help in the future.
