As Canada prepares to celebrate 150 years, the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs First Nations Family Advocates Office's focus is elsewhere…
On June 30th, the Advocate Office will complete the Keewaywin: Our Way Home, Manitoba First Nations Engagement on First Nations Child and Family Services and Jordan's Principle reports. The reports outline Manitoba First Nations' led reform options for child-welfare policy.
Indigenous child-welfare policy has always sought assimilation through forced removal of our children from parents, families and communities. The government granted itself the authority to decide, according to its standards, whether an Indigenous person was fit to parent. This mindset is found throughout Indigenous child-welfare policy, beginning with Indian Residential Schools, through the 60s Scoop and continuing with present-day Child and Family Services. It is time for change and time to bring our children home.
