My Dear Mother

Tasha is a nine-year-old Lapp girl
held at a Russian orphanage despite
having parents who are alive and
well. In the background of Tasha’s
fate lurks the greater global narrative
about the stolen generations,
placed in orphanages hoping that
they might be assimilated into the
majority population.
