IMPACTS:

Many were psychologically, physically, and sexually abused while living in state care or with their adoptive families.

Efforts to make stolen children reject their culture often caused them to feel ashamed of their Indigenous heritage.

THE STOLEN GENERATION:

Between 1910 and 1970, government policies of assimilation led to between 10 and 33 percent of Aboriginal Australian children being forcibly removed from their homes.

Indigenous people adapted to European culture, working as stock hands or labourers, servents etc.
