Calling out to Native Adoptees, Lost Birds #ICWA

Reminder: We are putting together a new anthology of Native American and First Nation adoptee narratives and reunion stories.  The first anthology was published in 2012 and is called TWO WORLDS: Lost Children of the Indian Adoption Projects. 

The deadline for the new book is November 1.  

If you are not in reunion and still searching for your first family and tribal nation, please send your birth information and a photo so we can publish this in the new book. 

We are asking writers to submit no more than ten (10) typed pages.

We do have a list of questions to guide you through writing, if you need them. Email Trace.  If you need more time to write, also email Trace.

Patricia Busbee is co-editor. The new book will be published this winter.

Email your stories to:

Contributors will receive copies of the new anthology as payment.
