First Peoples Speaking on Adoption

A celebration of the work of Yellowhead Tribal Services Agency (YTSA) in Alberta, this collection of essays describes the agency’s bold new model that integrates First Peoples’ adoption practices with provincial adoption laws and regulations. Now expecting closure to the long debate in Canada over adoption of Aboriginal children into non-Aboriginal families, the authors provide stories of good and bad adoptions over the years—and recommend ways to implement the new policies and practices.
