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.
I already thought these people were greedy, spiteful human beings, but now they're suing him and the Cherokee Nation? They've already found a way to "legally kidnap" a child, but now they're going to further victimize Dusten and the Nation. They're not good people.ReplyDelete
The Warrior Muse
I completely agree ShannonDelete
Jessica Munday of Trio Solutions in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina and her crew of Bradley Caricofe and Jennifer Cherock launched a vicious campaign to smear the name of Veronica's biological father. And Munday's team paraded the Baby Veronica case all over national television and Dr Phil as well. Is this the kind of public fanfare future adoptees must endure? Munday's clients include the Medical University of South Carolina Children's Hospital and MST Services in SC, which Veronica's adoptive mother Melanie Capobianco (employed as Melanie Duncan) works with violent juvenile offenders. This is terribly ironic. If Munday and Trio Solutions and Melanie Capobianco are so concerned about Veronica's welfare and claim to be supportive of children's services, then they have placed this young child at the center of a media circus. How tragic for Veronica.ReplyDelete
Yah, and Jessica Munday and her crew have engaged in the most unethical and underhanded PR tactics throughout this entire affair. I mean, why would anyone hire this woman? The kids at her firm think they are "stars" and have inflated egos. I'd stay miles away from them.ReplyDelete
Don't forget munday's IT tech at trio solutions is Brad Caricofe whose mud slinging at dusten was anything short of juvenile. caricofe has never mentioned any college degree which might explain his ignorance of American Indian law and his right-wing views. I think it was disgusting of Brad Caricofe (or Bradley caricofe) to smear dusten's record which was irrelevant to the case yet brad never mentioned that his name shows up on databases with his own criminal record as well.ReplyDelete
It is also ironic that Jessica Munday’s trio solutions helped out with an event for the African American Historical Alliance. Now munday would think twice about supporting a white couple who wanted to adopt a black child against the bio mom’s wishes. After all, she and her firm would not want to be accused of racism and lose her client!
