Children systemically stolen from families in broad daylight by government officials and religious zealots who’d determined that they could ‘breed’ the savagery out. Read that as they’d found a ready source of slavery.
Moved onto mission compounds trained to the churches standards, no language or customs allowed. Siblings harshly parted, no access to family, country or tradition. They suffered at every possible level, too many buried nearby.
Their tormentors felt justified so their cries were ignored. Some hung themselves, others rubbed themselves raw trying to make their skin white while everyone ignored their plight. Others subjected to sadistic paedophile rings, I dress their stories patterned and purple as night.
