Canada's Residential Schools
Almost 7000 bodies found and not one member of the church has been arrested. The names are out there. The church must be held accountable. #NeverForget#EveryChildMatters— Wambli Ska Wicasa 🦅🪶 (@LakotaWambli) August 30, 2021
The Justice Department is protecting the names of many perpetrators of abuse of Indigenous children.— Charlie Angus NDP (@CharlieAngusNDP) July 8, 2021
We need a special independent prosecutor who can force the government and church to turn over the documents.

This is a map of every residential "school" site in Canada.— Mumilaaq Qaqqaq (@MumilaaqQaqqaq) June 24, 2021
Every dot is a crime scene.
Only a few have been investigated so far.
Canada, do not get used to these numbers.
Do not let them become statistics.

What our Nations are up against!
To Veronica Brown
Veronica, we adult adoptees are thinking of you today and every day. We will be here when you need us. Your journey in the adopted life has begun, nothing can revoke that now, the damage cannot be undone. Be courageous, you have what no adoptee before you has had; a strong group of adult adoptees who know your story, who are behind you and will always be so.
Did you know?
Diane Tells His Name
We conclude this series & continue the conversation by naming that adoption is genocide. This naming refers to the process of genocide that breaks kinship ties through adoption & other forms of family separation & policing 🧵#NAAM2022 #AdoptionIsTraumaAND #AdopteeTwitter #FFY 1/6 pic.twitter.com/46v0mWISZ1— Adoptee Futures CIC (@AdopteeFutures) November 29, 2022
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Why tribes do not recommend the DNA swab
Detailed discussion of the Bering Strait theory and other scientific theories about the population of the modern-day Americas is beyond the scope of this essay. However, it should be noted that Indian people have expressed suspicion that DNA analysis is a tool that scientists will use to support theories about the origins of tribal people that contradict tribal oral histories and origin stories. Perhaps more important,the alternative origin stories of scientists are seen as intending to weaken tribal land and other legal claims (and even diminish a history of colonialism?) that are supported in U.S. federal and tribal law. As genetic evidence has already been used to resolve land conflicts in Asian and Eastern European countries, this is not an unfounded fear.
Dusten had no choice but to give Ronnie up peacefully. Because he loves his daughter so much, he did not want her to be taken forcibly. He did not want guns involved or the possibility of anyone getting shot. The way they proceeded with this, it certainly doesn't seem as if the Crapos cared about that trauma to Ronnie at all. I wonder what they think (if they even think about it at all) Tommy Brown being so traumatized that he may have had a heart attack.ReplyDelete
The best part is she will get to the age when she can live as she choses without a court forcing her to live with foster parents who robbed her from her true parent. I feel sorry for the Copabiancos who think they can buy love at the expense of hurting others. If this was truly about Veronica, they would have left her stay with her true father and went about finding another child who desperately need a loving home, but this was only about themselves. Ego, greed and selfishness are really what this was about but in the end, they will lose her for what they did.ReplyDelete
She will get to the age where she can legally leave the Copabiancos and return to her father. The courts won't be able to force to stay then. She will never bond with people who are just foster parents to her and to what they did to her father. God have mercy on the Copabiancos.ReplyDelete
I saw this posted on a blog and thought that it was appropriate to your posting about Dusten.ReplyDelete
Unfortunately Jessica Munday's people at Trio Solution have been spreading many of these lies. One of them is Bradley Caricofe a Systems Administrator at Trio Solutions, Jessica Munday's firm in Mt Pleasant, SC. Brad Caricofe supports movements like Munday;s the Coalition for the protection of Indian Children to destroy Indian sovereignty. Brad has waged a vicious campaign against Dusten Brown by continuously posting comments on Charleston's P&C like:
Brown made no attempt to inquire about the well being of the child for 120 after her birth. During that time the Capobiancos, who never abandoned her or had doubts about parenting, became emotionally attached to the child... 8/25/13
Matt Capobianco is the child's birth father and was there to cut the baby girl's umbilical cord. Brown is the biological father who knew the due date yet made no inquiry into the well being of the child or mother until 120 days later. Where were all these "protestors" when Brown harmed the child emotionally with his insane transfer of custody? I don't think these folks are very intelligent.... 8/21/13
Funny that Bradley exposed Dusten's criminal record but never said anything about his own as Bradley H Caricofe on Instant Checkmate. Maybe Bradley was delinquent for child support!
The Charleston NAACP President just wrote an article on Baby Veronica and Baby Deseray fro the ICTMN. I can't reprint the whole piece but here's a part of it:ReplyDelete
Our children are not chattels to be conveniently sold to adoptive parents who care more about what they want than what is best for the child. What gives them the right to take a minority child when a loving and adoring father wants to raise her? While contributing eggs and sperm doesn’t necessarily make a good mother or father, neither does fighting a prolonged court battle to win custody and securing a public relations firm to accuse the birth father of being a deadbeat dad.
Real mothers and fathers will always do what’s best for the child, and if that child is happy with her biological parent, no one should attempt to sever that bond.
From all accounts of both the Baby Veronica and Baby Desaray cases, I believe that there should be a thorough investigation of the birth mothers, the adoptive parents, and the attorney for the adoption agency to ensure that the civil rights of these children and their biological fathers have not been violated.
We as a nation must protect the civil rights of children of all races. Above all, we must remember that the words of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King remind us that our children too are “created equal."
Thank you Mike D. and all the commenters. I agree completely there needs to be an investigation into adoption as an industry who fills orders for babies and the couples who pay money for a human prize.Delete
