The old boy from the Norwegian Home of Manitoba corrui country died because of a dispute over who paid for medical care and was unable to go home.
Bernadette Sumner says her 17-year-old son Keanu has fallen through the cracks most of the time as the family lives in the first nation of wayseecappo in Manitoba.
Kenu was born with reproductive disorder.

"A lot of what he needs every day, mainly a wheelchair, followed by an elevator, because my father and I are carrying him, she said at the Jordan principles summit in Winnipeg on Wednesday.
The Sumner family is struggling every day to get through the difficulties, getting used to submitting documents and desperately searching for money and help for their son.
For years, the family has been looking for ways to get the special beds and wheelchairs he needs to avoid bed sores, and because he needs to stay cool, he needs an air conditioner and a bathtub chair.

The Minister of Indigenous Services, Jane Philpott, said that when the Liberal Party formed the government, there was no situation in which children received care through the Jordanian principles, but added that there was more work to be done.
"Jordan's Principle is actually a way to describe what fairness looks like or what it looks like, and she said in a phone interview with sarkatoon that the Liberal Party is holding a caucus retreat there.
"This is a statement, whether the child is an Aboriginal or a non-Aboriginal
In Canada, every child in our country should have a fair chance to thrive.
Kevin Hart, regional head of First Nations congress in Manitoba, said Aboriginal children are still in the cracks of jurisdiction.
Jordan's principles should be extended to education, children and family services, and even the judicial system, he said.
