Drawing on the expertise of Indigenous scholars and researchers, including voices from the front lines in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, this book examines child welfare practices in kinship care, FASD, homelessness, aging out of the system, and transitions for rural youth leaving care. Themes running throughout the book include renewing and decolonizing child welfare work, anti-oppressive practices, the historical legacy of the 60s Scoop, and the needs of marginalized and vulnerable children.
