Two worlds : lost children of the Indian adoption projects by Patricia Busbee( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One-quarter of all Indian children were removed from their families and placed in non-Indian adoptive and foster homes or orphanages as part of the Indian Adoption Project, which ran from 1958 through 1967. One study found that in 1969, eighty-five percent of the Indian children in sixteen states were placed in non-Indian homes. Where are these children now? The co-editors and adoptees located other Native adult survivors of adoption and asked them to write a narrative. This is the first book to expose in first-person detail the adoption practices that have been going on for years under the guise of caring for destitute Indigenous children

Lost children of the Indian adoption projects by Patricia Busbee( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Editors Trace A. DeMeyer and Patricia Busbee, both adoptees, found other Native adult survivors of adoption and asked them to write a narrative. In part one, adoptees share their unique experience of living in two worlds, surviving assimilation via adoption, opening sealed adoption records, and in most cases, a reunion with tribal relatives. Adoptees who wrote in the first volume of Lost Children of the Indian Adoption Products, Two Worlds, provide updates in part two. In part three, adoptees still searching for their families share their birth information, date and location. Recent history about the Supreme Court case involving Baby Veronica and the impact of DNA is also covered. These accounts of Native American adoptees are intended to challenge beliefs in the positive outcomes of closed adoptions in the United States and Canada and expose the genocidal policies of governments who created Indian adoption projects
Two worlds : an anthology of narratives by Trace L Hentz( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tragic, true, heartbreaking, astonishing... those words have been used to describe the anthology Two Worlds, the first book to expose in first-person detail the adoption practices that have been going on for years under the guise of caring for destitute Indigenous children. What happened and where are these Native children now? The new updated Second Edition of TWO WORLDS (Vol. 1), with narratives from Native American and First Nations adoptees, covers the history of Indian child removals in North America, the adoption projects, their impact on Indian Country, the 60s Scoop in Canada and how it impacts the adoptee and their families. The Lost Children Book Series includes: Two Worlds, Called Home: The Roadmap, Stolen Generations, and In The Veins: Poetry. The book series is an important contribution to American Indian history. Trace Hentz (formerly DeMeyer) located other Native adult survivors of adoption and asked them to write a narrative. The adoptees share their unique experience of living in Two Worlds, surviving assimilation via adoption, opening sealed adoption records, and in most cases, a reunion with their tribal relatives. Indigenous identity and historical trauma takes on a whole new meaning in this adoption book series. Since 2004, award winning journalist Hentz was writing her historical biography "One Small Sacrifice: A Memoir." She was contacted by many adoptees after stories were published about her work. More adoptees were found after "One Small Sacrifice" had its own Facebook page and the American Indian Adoptees blog started in 2009. In 2011, Trace was introduced to Patricia Busbee and asked her to co-edit the first edition of Two Worlds. As Hentz writes in the Preface, "The only way we change history is to write it ourselves." This book is a must read for all that want the truth, since very little is known or published on this history
