TULSA, Oklahoma -

The biological father of a toddler at the center of a custody battle was honored at the 70th annual National Congress of American Indians Tuesday morning.

Dusten Brown, the father of 4-year-old Veronica, along with his wife Robin, led a group of Native American veterans into the ceremony taking place at the Cox Convention Center in downtown Tulsa.

Last week, Brown announced he was dropping all custody claims and was working with the South Carolina couple who adopted Veronica on ways he could be involved in her life.

Veronica had been the subject of court battles since she was born to a non-Cherokee mother, who put the girl up for adoption. Matt and Melanie Capobianco of Charleston, South Carolina, had been lined up to receive custody since 2009.
