For decades, Wabanaki children in the U.S. state of Maine were taken from their homes and placed with non-Aboriginal families.

The system of forced removal has had devastating impacts on Aboriginal families there.

Now tribes are hoping a process already underway in Canada can bring healing to families that have been torn apart.

APTN National News reporter Tim Fontaine has this story.
