My friend and fellow TRA Sandy Whitehawk was featured on MPR this morning. I was pleased with the reporting on this piece. You can hear the report here.

This weekend the White Earth Nation is celebrating the return of children lost for years. Hundreds of American Indian children were taken from Minnesota reservations and adopted by non-Indian families in the 1950s and 60s. The White Earth Aniishinabe are the first tribe in the country to formally welcome the adoptees home.
