Aboriginal children are the face of a homegrown, attempted genocide. And tehy are still starving -- many living in poverty without the basic necessities of life, because land and resources continue to be stolen from their territories, with just as many starving for meaning, their culture, their language and their land. The children of those that survived the nutritional experiments, torture, sexual, emotional, and physical abuse, and the assimilative and genocidal policies of Canada still live with the consequences and the trauma. Every day. There are more Native children in the child welfare system than were in the residential school system at its height because of the cycles of violence and trauma they inflicted on our families.
