The over representation of First Nations children in child-care, stems from decades of suffering and intergenerational trauma. The infliction of these deeply stressing and disturbing experiences has led to dangerous coping methods, incarceration and often death amongst Indigenous populations.

With strengthening spirit and traditions, they attempt to spark change, bring awareness to large and growing numbers of missing Indigenous women, ’60s scoop survivors and, bring their children home.
