TOP Aboriginal people appearing before this Inquiry have repeatedly expressed their concern that any overhaul of the justice system in Manitoba must also include a re-examination of the child welfare system.
They see the child welfare and justice systems as being interconnected and interwoven. The intrusion by child welfare authorities in the past has been paternalistic and colonial in nature, condescending and demeaning in fact, and often insensitive and brutal to Aboriginal people.
Aboriginal children have been taken from their families, communities and societies, first by the residential school system and later by the child welfare system.
Both systems have left Aboriginal people and their societies severely damaged. If Aboriginal people are correct, and we believe they are, part of the reason for the high numbers of Aboriginal people in correctional facilities is the fact that Aboriginal people still do not fully control their own lives and destinies, or the lives of their own children.
Aboriginal people must have more control over the ways in which their children are raised, taught and protected. Failing this, we are convinced we will see more, not fewer, Aboriginal people in our correctional facilities in the future.
We will see more young Aboriginal people falling into a pattern that is becoming all too familiar. It takes them from institution to institution, from foster home to young offender facility and, finally, on to adult jails. People there worry because they know their young people make up a significant proportion of their populations today.
The numbers of young people in these communities are increasing at a rate far higher than that of the general population. Aboriginal people worry about the future survival of their languages, cultures and societies if yet another generation is swept into institutions and away from their communities.
It is for these and many other reasons that we have made a careful examination of the child welfare system. We felt it necessary because: No analysis of the justice system can be complete without understanding the devastating effect these relations, guided by government policies, have had on Aboriginal families.
For many Aboriginal societies, existing child welfare practices have ranked as a major destructive force to their families, communities and cultures. We do not agree. We believe many of the reasons why the numbers of Aboriginal people are so disproportionately high in the child welfare system are the same as the reasons why they are so over-represented in the criminal justice system.
It would be impossible to present a complete picture of the criminal justice system, and the youth justice system, without also analysing the field of child and family services.
These systems, we believe, must work much more closely together. The needs and problems of Aboriginal families and communities are intertwined, and we feel we cannot separate them completely or relegate them to one system or the other.
The criminal justice system must move in a similar direction if it hopes to achieve similar success. Therefore, there is every indication that child and family services will play an increasingly important role in Aboriginal communities in the future. We will identify some of these problems and offer suggestions to make this system more effective.
TOP TOP An Historical Overview of Government-Aboriginal Relations For some time, governments have undertaken to serve neglected children by taking them into their care or by helping the families of these children through what we now call child welfare services.
Services may include family counselling, substance abuse counselling, assistance to an unmarried parent, or taking the child away from a disrupted home or family and placing the child in a foster home, a group home or with a new family, through adoption.All India Crime Prevention Society AICPS.
