POTUS AND FLOTUS Refer To Scoopings, But Still Only Specifically To Those Victims Who Were – After Being Scooped – Then Placed In Residential Schools

July 19, 2015 § Leave a comment

July 19, 2015, The critical reference to Scoopings of North American Indian children from their birth homes by a USA president and FLOTUS is unprecedented but POTUS and FLOTUS continue to qualify their references to Canada Scoops as that which then placed the children, after being ‘scooped’, in residential schools, i.e., they neglect to acknowledge that thousands – at least a few thousands, and that is being conservative – were not placed in residential schools but instead placed in USA adoption and foster care system. The adoption papers of A portion who were transited from Canada to USA brokered by Pearl S Buck’s Welcome House Adoption Agency in Pennsylvania, USA.

Oddly enough given the unique and integral role that she and her adoption agency played in bringing Canada Scoops to USA there is a musical – yes, a musical – set to take place, Pearl: The Musical, in August 2015 at NYC’s Lincoln Center. Funding for the production is out of China. While Welcome House has to date been cooperative and seemingly earnest, earnest enough in trying to assist victims of Canada Scoops brought to USA via Welcome House, that cooperation has diminished noticeably with the development of this musical that does not intend to acknowledge Pearl S Buck’s role in Canada Scoops/60’s Scoops.

Updated: Correspondence Between Saskatchewan Premiere Brad Wall AND USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canada Scoops, Wayne Snellgrove

July 18, 2015 § Leave a comment

July 18, 2015, USA Placed Victim-Survivor Wayne Snellgrove replies to Brad Wall (see link to Wayne’s own website), Premiere of Saskatchewan. As far as we are concerned, Premier Wall’s reply expresses NO understanding of the continuing effect of Canada Scoops on victims placed in USA and west Europe, i.e., as if a truth and reconciliation commission concerning Canada Scoopings never happened, hadn’t recently concluded with a large report that his office supposedly read and participated in. 

Of course, giving benefit of the doubt for now, knowing how these things work, it’s entirely likely it was a leanly staffed summer day at the office of the premiere and the wrong/inexperienced member of staff drafted and sent this letter to Wayne, and that the next correspondence from Mr. Wall will be more substantive.

Our Earlier Posts on The Correspondence Between Mr. Wall, Premiere of Saskatchewan and USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops, Wayne Snellgrove, follow.

 

July 10, 2015, When USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canada Scoops, Wayne Snellgrove of Miami, Florida, reached out to Premier of Saskatchewan, Brad Wall, (see letter from Wayne below) the reply back (provided via link to Wayne’s own website, link below) that Wayne quickly received conveyed an apparent ignorance and a real lack of sensitivity. The letter from the Premier did not convey any understanding of how horrible, and how responsible for Canada Scoops the effects of which continue to violate it’s victims, the government of Canada is.

We’ve been providing copies of these letters to interested media, legal experts and other opinion leaders. We are also contemplating reaching out again to Mr. Wall just incase this letter does not reflect the Premier’s feelings and position on the matter of USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian/60’s Scoops. From Premier Saskatchewan Jul 7

The Vatican Weighs In – The TRC-Canada Staff Who Advised In Drafting Of The Apology

July 13, 2015 § Leave a comment

July 13, 2015, While requests made to The Vatican by North American Indian tribal leaders to nullify (2) 15th Century Papal Bulls that continue to serve as the basis for today’s land claims (that means all land deeds the original land deed of which starts with ownership by North American Indian) haven’t been responded to (see Link1 below), The Vatican has spoken out and apologized for the Catholic Church role in Canada Scoops/60’s Scoops but limited the apology so that it only addresses the victims of the Canada Scoops/60’s Scoops who were placed in residential schools and does not specifically refer to the victims who were placed in adoption and foster care in USA and west Europe.

The TRC-Canada representatives who advised the staff of the pope in drafting this apology should be ashamed of themselves for again leaving out victims of Canada Scoops placed in USA and west Europe, placed in adoption and foster care and not placed within the residential school systems.

Reminder, Again: We Don’t Take Donations

July 13, 2015 § Leave a comment

July 13, 2015, Every 6 months or so I have to remind everyone that we do not accept donations. We are speaking with qualified, corporations and high net worth individuals who have expressed interest in sponsoring/underwriting a North American Indian Adoptee Reunification pow wow that we hope to hold in South Hampton, NY Autumn 2015; But, again, we are not taking individual donations for this event, not for any reason.   We do though appreciate the underlying intention of support, very much.

When FLOTUS Tells Groups of North American Indian Children ‘You have a POTUS & a FLOTUS Who Have Your Back’, It’s Not Just Well Meaning Rhetoric

July 10, 2015 § Leave a comment

July 11, 2015, When 1st Lady of USA Michelle Obama tells these North American Indian children ‘We have your back,’ (see link below) it’s not simply well meaning rhetoric, she means it; they as a couple and the Obama Administration itself have, when it comes to USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops, had the backs of North American Indians, gone out of their way to understand, take meaningful action and enable others working on behalf of their government to take meaningful action. As far as USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops are concerned, her husband’s administration allowed-enabled USCIS to approve US citizenship of 1st and only USA Placed Victim – Survivor of Canada Scoops recognized by the recently concluded Truth & Reconciliation Commission – Canada to achieve his USA Citizenship on basis of being a victim of that particular genocide, a.k.a., Canada Scoops/Sixties Scoops. Doing so opened the possibility of all other victim of same genocide to then achieve their USA citizenship expedited, i.e., a real legislative Pandora’s Box but it was still done and should enable the thousands of other Canada Scoops victims placed in USA to eventually clarify their own identification and immigration status safely.
