National Public Radio has been running a series on Native American children and their placement in non-Native foster homes:
- Incentives and Cultural Bias Fuel Foster System
- Tribes Question Foster Group’s Power and Influence
- Native Survivors of Foster Care Return Home
The links take you to a transcript of the shows, but you should listen to the story to hear and really take in what it means to lose your home in the deepest sense.
I’ll add new stories, as they occur.
And now, given how many of you were asking about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a.k.a. Mormons, here’s a story on the “I Am Mormon” campaign and skinny jeans. Kinda.
