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
