Stolen from Our Embrace : The Abduction of First Nations Children and the Restoration of Aboriginal Communities

Stolen from Our Embrace: The Abduction of First Nations Children and the Restoration of Aboriginal Communities

By David Neel, Ernie Crey, Suzanne Fournier
$26.95




This important and timely book is a balance of the most gruesome elements of assimilation: church-run schools, the child welfare system, survivors of sexual abuse, and Foetal Alcohol Syndrome counter-balanced against heroic stories of children who survived, fought back, and found their way home.

Harrrowing stories are presented wherever possible in the first person, by Fournier, a journalist, and Cree, a B.C native spokesperson and activist, and a stolen child himself. The final message is optimistic, suggesting that redress and reconciliation could enrich the entire country by creating healthy aboriginal communities.
