Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this accessible and heartbreaking book, Churchill tells of the devastating results of a government sponsored program whose stated goal was to eradicate native North American culture. For five consecutive generations, from roughly 1880-1980, Native American children in the United States and Canada were forcibly taken from their families and relocated to residential schools. Half the children did not survive, and those who did were left permanently scarred, often resulting in alcoholism, suicide, and the transmission of trauma to their own children.

Book News Annotation:

Ward (American Indian studies, U. of Colorado, Boulder) traces the history of removing Native American children from their homes to residential schools as part of government policies, 1880s-1980s, which he views as genocidal. He includes photos of victims of "residential school syndrome," and a list of these schools in the US and Canada. Ward recently gained notoriety for his remarks about 9/11 victims.
