About the Author

The co-founder and chairperson of the Christian Alliance for Indian Child Welfare, Elizabeth “Lisa” Morris holds a BA in Christian ministries from Living Faith Bible College in Alberta, Canada; a diploma of Bible and missions; and is a registered nurse. Although raised upper-middle class, Lisa spent much of her adult life living within modern Indian Country, witnessing her extended family’s struggle with alcoholism, drug abuse, and suicide. After a life-changing experience, her husband, Roland, a member of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, rejected the mantle of victimhood and blame, became personally accountable, and led their family in a new direction. Subsequently, they both came to understand that foundational tenets of federal Indian policy were at the root of the pain and violence destroying their loved ones.
Lisa and Roland raised their five children, as well as four grandchildren who were placed with them, through the Indian Child Welfare Act. She is actively rallying for governmental reform to provide true help for Native American families.

A realistic look into modern day reservation life that many of us witness on a day by day, year by year basis. This book notes real life experiences by the author that is a norm for very many of us living reservation life. This book is a must read for any decision maker or social worker to understand the real world and life of Native Americans experience. Also a wake up call to those who continue to live in denial with the belief that we are healing as nations.
