Format: Paperback
I've read the book once, and need to read it again. There is so much statistical information to digest that it is difficult to grasp in one read. And because the contents are so disturbing, it is not an easy read.

This book should be mandatory reading for every Native American AND for every North American who thinks the "Indians" are being "given too much". There is no possible way for the Governments of Canada and US to compensate the First Nation populations, but they darn well better try to atone in every way they can.

This book was very informative and moving for me. I think it is something that should be read by anyone interested in educating themselves about one of the many issues that many First Nations families have faced. Start with this book and continue to educate yourself by reading books written by First Nations people.

HASH(0x97fd99b4) out of 5 stars Stolen From Our Embrace Jan. 20 2009
By Kirby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
From the back cover:

"Truth is the river of change. Once spoken a clean next new step is possible, and Suzzane Fournier and Ernie Crey have brought us a giant step forward. Within these pages lies the determination of spirit and community to make right terrible wrongs. Through clarity, courage, wisdom and heart, our first peoples began their healing; and oh, what they will have to teach and tell this nation, this world."
-Shirley Tubocotte, Metis cousellor and co-director/writer, To a Safer Place

"This book will challenge readers to rethink the illusion painted by government about how effective child welfare policies are. Through the use of heart-wrenching personal testimonies, it reaffirms the systematic racism and ignorance among non-aboriginal people dealing with child welfare. This book will serve as an invaluable source to cultivate the restoration of aboriginal people's humanity and dignity as we seek to control our own destiny."
-Viola Thomas, President, United Native Nation

"Seldom do aboriginal writers have an opporunity to express the valuable insights offered by the authors of this important book. Fournier and Crey have committed to the written word that which ahs been expressed in our prayers for so many years. It is crucial that First Nations take these words and make them a reality."
-Steven Point, Skowkale chief, lawyer and Stodo Nation chiefs' respresentative

"A graphic and terrifying account of horrific abuses, this book at once captures the difficult daily struggles of our people and the slow, painful but powerful healing journeys underway in our communities."
-Edward John, First Nations Summit, and Wendy Grant-John, activist and former Minqueam Nation chief
