background of the Indian Adoption Projects and 60s Scoop, along with
pertinent news, history, documentaries, quotes and bibliography, this stunning new anthology has been
edited by award winning journalist, adoptee-author Trace L Hentz

By Trace Hentz (Shawnee-Cherokee-French Canadian mix)
I am honored to be editor of this new anthology, to know these adoptees (or their relative who wrote an essay) and to work with them. Their stories will amaze you, make you cry, make you proud and best of all, this collection writes new truth, new history, blazing new ground!
After doing two earlier anthologies, WE are survivors and WE are resilient. That I know.
Ebook proceeds will benefit the IronEagleFeather
Project for adoptees

illustration I painted years ago when I was in a very dark place in my
life. This is a painting of a subject matter that has always drawn my
interest, that is the Native life and the beauty of tradition, family and
nature. As my sister, Elizabeth Blake, said about this painting that
still hangs on my wall, “the most interesting part is that the face is
not visible. That is how it is when you do not know your birth family.”
