Monday Movie Night - Missing Threads: The Story of the Wisonsin Indian Child Welfare Act

A culture will die without its children. Yet the removal of Native American children from their homes and families has occurred at the alarming rate of 25% of all children. Many Indian families have experienced the loss of children to non-tribal homes, even when a relative or other tribal member was willing and able to provide a safe, stable and loving home for the child.  This has happened in Wisconsin despite the existence of the federal Indian Child Welfare Act. This documentary tells the story of the law’s creation and eventual enactment, interwoven with first-hand accounts from individuals directly affected by outplacement, provides both macro and the micro views and makes the topic accessible to viewers of all different backgrounds
