The safety of children on the Spirit Lake reservation has been in question for several years. The reservation has made national headlines, from CNN to the New York Times, as multiple children on the reservation have been killed or injured.

The situation grew so dire the BIA took over child protection services on the reservation last year. But the tribe still has control over programs like foster care and an influx of new leadership says they're making effort to protect children on the reservation. Adam Ladwig reports.
