Available Formats:


  • Contributor: Montgomery, H. Monty; Fuchs, Don; Bennett, Marlyn; Kikulwe, Daniel; Badry, Dorothy Eleanor

    "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. Issues in the volume include renewing and decolonizing child welfare work, anti-oppressive practices, the historical legacy of the Sixties Scoop, and the needs of marginalized and vulnerable children."--
