Blood Memory reveals the untold history of America’s Indian Adoption Era – a time when nearly one-third of Indigenous children were removed from reservations nationwide. A survivor of this “stolen generation” returns home to heal her community. A child welfare attorney redresses the law he once fought to protect. The future of Indian Country hangs in the balance. Through the memoirs of a Native adoptee healer, a 12-year-old adopted girl, an Indian child welfare advocate and a child welfare attorney, Blood Memory explores the Indian Adoption Era and the controversial role of the Indian Child Welfare Act.
