Native Children are Tribal members. They need to stay within the Tribe. The Tribe has jurisdiction in cases of Children. It's wrong and damaging to the child to be taken away from their protection, their support, their Tribal families. Also there should be programs set up to help them with their needs as it is with other peoples who live in this country. They need support. The laws must be brought up to date to include our Native peoples. Don't take away from them and brush them under the rug.

They are taking our children still through the Culturally encapsulated state workers that are Christians that find ways of making the parents look unfit if they are not part of their church community..

My great-grandmother was definitely native from British Columbia--but I have no way to trace or track that history.

Our Indigenous children should not be apprehended into caucasion families, we need safe houses for children that have Native Childcare Workers and Counseling, and Cultural Identity for our children that are coming from Violent/Alcohol/Drug related Homes. Only then will they be safe. Once the parents have completed Healing Substance Abuse Programs that fit the courts satisfaction then the parents can get their children back.

My cousins children were apprehended in the City because she was fighting a person that was being noisy in her home, someone called Ministry and her children were apprended just because she was First Nation...

In these cases where children are apprehended with false cause, we should have our own First Nation Board of Directors Native Social Workers and Chiefs to discuss the Social Problems of our children and families and how to keep our First Nations Children with our own people, I do not agree with our children going to strangers...

Children are being taken by the ministry and put in to foster homes in the Northwest an kept there.
It took me 6 months to fight to get my grandchildren outta the system, The 1st home they were put in was with a 70 yr old sungle female where my youngest grandson got bite from her dog, The 2nd home they were put in was with people I knew who partied all the time, But try telling the ministry that when the workers put it all over their facebook accounts how much they party n post photo's....

Plus the one worker use to go out the the foster parenst home to party n crack out with the people who were responsile for my grandchildren.
My youngest brother lost his son in the system, He was fighting them for awhile n then the foster parent now is going for custody.. Who are they to take our children away when they put them right into dangerous places.I have no respect at all for the system at all.

I'm not tryna start an arguement here, But in one post you are admitting to the drinkin yet in the other you are all for the system. You yourself told me you have saved a lot of money since seperating. I did a lot of foot work while fighting for my grandchildren an i know for a fact that the ministry does not do a proper home check on the foster parents. I was also helping other parents get their children out as we the public have noone to help us. I know cuz i fought the fight an i won. All...

The ministry did they help you out other n with money? No they did not because i know the boyz didnt have the proper beds as i was tryna help you guys get that as thats what your spouse at the time said was needed, The only ones who helped was the NTC they helped get you guys the Car seat needed. I also talked to the people in Victoria about how things were handled. I was on the phone all day everyday tryna get all the info i needed. I did this all for my grandchildren. To this day i will stand by my own findings an say the Ministry does not do their job right at all..

I pray that our voices will b heard...Creator, bring our children home, so we can love them n teach them the ways of their ancestors. I teach at cultural studies @ NEC & it's amazing just how many of our people have been though the system, n have no knowledge of their cultural background...n I c how hard it is on them, to not know anything about your roots.
