"Weeping Goes Unheard" contains true heart-wrenching narratives based on historical records

AGOURA HILLS, Calif. - eTradeWire -- In her eighth book dealing with human rights and social injustice, journalist, humanitarian, and social activist Lucia Mann tackles Canada's shady history regarding the offensive treatment of its indigenous population. One of the primary causes of this discrimination is due to European settlers who created the abhorrent "Indian Act." This law paved the way for the subsequent immoral treatment of Canada's indigenous people—a treatment that has existed in the shadows for far too long. It all started with the following statement from Duncan Campbell Scott, Deputy Superintendent of Indian Affairs for Canada (1913-1932):

"I want to get rid of the Indian problem. Our objective is to continue until there is no Indian in Canada that has not been absorbed into the body politic, and there is no Indian Question and no Indian Department."

In Weeping Goes Unheard, Ms. Mann paints a compelling picture of the wrongdoing that has separated  native families and torn children away from their parents. Her work represents an overdue look at the tragic injustice that exists today—even as her book goes to print.
