From the 1950s to the 1990s, thousands of Indigenous children across Canada were apprehended by provincial governments and places with non-Indigenous families, isolating many from Indigenous culture, language and identity. This session will provide educators with an overview of historical and current insights into the “Sixties Scoop”, as well as increased understanding of its legacy, and arguable continues into present day. You will leave this session with an increased understanding of the complexities of the “Sixties Scoop”, including resources and strategies to contribute towards reconciliation.
