Throughout the sixties and seventies Black and Indigenous children were taken from their families and adopted into white families. This is the story of one adoptee.

Angela talks about having her history taken from her, and replaced with the history of the dominant culture. What does that say about our society when we take away somebody's history, and what does it say about how they feel about the people they taken away from? What does it reveal about the unseen racist ideas of people and the racist policies of a system that values our history so little.

Angela also talks about doing the work to overcome trauma, the responsibility to "do our own shit" so that our children will have something better.
