Deathscapes
 Girls and Children: Stages of Institutional Violence

‘Child welfare is a pipeline to prison for Indigenous peoples generally, but for Indigenous women and girls specifically, child welfare is also a pipeline to child exploitation, sex trafficking and murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls…It makes no sense for federal or provincial governments to apologize for past policies and practices if they continue today at even higher rates.’

Pam Palmater, Mi’kmaw activist and lawyer
