Moccasin Talks Speaker Series

On May 22nd, our Moccasin Talks series continues with an examination of The Sixties Scoop from two different perspectives by two different First Nations members. Like many non-Indigenous Canadians, I was unfamiliar with The Sixties Scoop, a name given to a series of provincial child welfare policies that actually started in the mid-1950s and continued into the 1980s. During this time, thousands of Indigenous children were “scooped up” from their homes and families, placed in foster homes, and eventually adopted by non-Indigenous families across Canada and the United States. These children lost not only their families but also their names, languages, and heritage.
