The 60’s Scoop
March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST$25
Presenter: Tracey Whiteye
Throughout the 1960s, Indigenous children were forcibly removed or ‘scooped’ from their homes, communities, and families to be adopted into mostly non-Indigenous, middle-class families. Many of the Survivors were left with deep emotional and physical scars as well as loss of family and culture. In this session – The 60s Scoop — Tracey Whiteye will describe the systemic discrimination at the heart of this government policy as well as how Survivors are regaining their cultures, languages, and identity as Indigenous peoples.
