"If Everyone Cared: Transnational Indigenous Women’s Activism and Child Welfare, 1960-1980"
Dr. Margaret Jacobs (History, UNL)

Jacobs’s presentation follows the transnational trails of two Indigenous women activists from the United States and Australia as they uncovered the ubiquity and trauma of Indigenous child removal in their nations and Canada in the 1960s and 1970s. These and other Indigenous women activists made child welfare a central issue in Indigenous movements for self-determination in the late twentieth century.
