Of course these events, rules, and laws still impact our society today. The most shocking video for me to watch was about the treatment of Native American children, families, and people by creating boarding schools and removing children from their families and culture. I had some idea of this but not to the extent that the video educated me about. I am shocked that the child welfare system placed and adopted children with white families because Native American parents were not seen as "fit" parents. I'm shocked at this practice by the United States but I'm also not surprised. Our systems of government need to be re-evaluated immediately.
