White Earth Reservation welcoming home its own

Email

The White Earth Band of Ojibwe is hosting a welcome home gathering this weekend for tribal members who were adopted outside the reservation as children.

Organizers of the event, to be held at the Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen, say that during the 1950s and 1960s the reservation lost uncounted children in what advocates call a systematic removal.
