More than 91,300 migrants – most of them Haitians – have trekked through Panama’s dangerous Darien Gap jungle so far this year in hopes of reaching North America, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said on Friday.

Citing statistics from Panamanian migration authorities, the IOM said 56,600 Haitian migrants had passed through the Darien Gap, one of the most dangerous routes in Latin America, between January and September of this year. Many had children with them.

As hundreds of unmarked graves of Indigenous youth are discovered in Canada and the United States, the world is made to confront an ugly history, a history of separation and trauma for our most precious population: children. Although these headlines highlight the pain associated with boarding schools, they are one small piece of the story of Indigenous youth in North America. Native communities have gone to great lengths to secure the well-being of Native children. One example is the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA).
