    3/256 of a race????

    'Baby Veronica' adoption case re-opens wounds for Native Americans

    The case of Veronica, who is 3/256 Cherokee, centered on the Indian Child Welfare Act, passed by Congress in 1978 in response to Native American protests. The law established that it was best to keep Native children with their families or, short of that, within their tribe to preserve their culture.
