    The Stolen Generation

    Between 1910 and 1970 Indigenous children were forcefully removed from their homes and put into orphanages. They were then adopted into European families and sometimes never saw their birth families again. The Indigenous children were called mean names and often treated badly by their adoptive families . The reasoning behind why the Government took the children is that they believed that this way they could breed out the Indigenous Australians.
