Glass Children: Native and Non-Native Women Speak on Child Rearing

Country Available: Canada, USA
Many of the same struggles and joys of motherhood are experienced by both Native and non-Native women, yet there are specific cultural differences and difficulties that are perpetuated through generations.

In Glass Children, seven women of varied Native and non-Native backgrounds give their observations and views on child rearing practices today, and discuss the ways they nurture their own children.

The issues addressed in this film include single parenting, self esteem, discrimination, adoption, cultural preservation and status of age.
