The colonial practice of forcibly removing Indigenous children from their families did not end with the closing of Indian residential schools. It continues today in the form of provincial and territorial child welfare systems, which remove Indigenous children and youth at alarmingly high rates. Featuring the voices of Indigenous youth previously involved with child welfare, this film shares their insights into how ongoing settler colonialism impacts their lives, and demonstrates their multiple strategies of resistance to assimilation and state control.
