The forced assimilation of Aboriginal children in Canada

Suzanne FOURNIER and Ernie GREY relate the truth about the “abduction” of native children in Canada by the State & Church as a result of the Indian Act of 1876 that gave the Minister of Indian & Northern Affairs intrusive rights. To discover more about the waning of Aboriginal culture in this country due to "lawful abduction" of children, who were forced into Residential Schools or put into Foster homes, read STOLEN FROM OUR EMBRACE, the abduction of First Nations children and the restoration of Aboriginal communities (ISBN: 978-1-55054-661-3). Published in June 1998, the authors share their experiences and that of their community members along with the effect that such forced assimilation had on them, and their search for their identiry, for their culture.
