QUOTE OF THE DAY

The News Herald (Willoughby, OH) - - Nation + World -

Colleen Car­di­nal, co-founder of the Na­tional Indige­nous Sur­vivors of Child Wel­fare Net­work speaks to the press in Ot­tawa, Canada. Car­di­nal, from a Plains Cree fam­ily in Al­berta, was one of thou­sands of indige­nous chil­dren taken from their birth fam­i­lies from the 1960s to mid-1980s and sent to live with white fam­i­lies.

“What I heard in­stead was, ‘Well, we picked you out of a cat­a­logue of na­tive chil­dren up for adop­tion.’ ” — Colleen Car­di­nal
