For more than 100 years Lakota children have been taken from their families. It began in the 1880s under a U.S. Government policy of forced assimilation: children as young as 5 years old were removed from their homes, shipped to boarding schools, and stripped of their native culture. Today, a generation of children is once again losing its connection to its culture. This time it’s through state-run foster care.Over the past decade, the state of South Dakota has removed more than 5,000 Native American children from their homes.
