For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. As recently as the 1970ís, one in four Native children nationwide were living in non-Native foster care, adoptive homes, or boarding schools. Many children experienced devastating emotional and physical harm by adults who mistreated them and tried to erase their cultural identity. Now they share their stories.
