Bi-Giwen: Coming Home Truth Telling from the Sixties Scoop

Bi-Giwen: Coming Home Truth Telling from the Sixties Scoop

Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta (SSISA) invites mainstream Albertans and those affected by the Sixties Scoop to attend the viewing of this historic national exhibit.

The first of its kind, our newest exhibition, explores the experiences of Survivors of the Sixties Scoop, which began in the 1960s and continued until the late 1980s, where Indigenous children were taken from their families, often forcibly, fostered and/or adopted out to non-Indigenous homes often far away from their communities and some across the globe. Developed in partnership with the National Indigenous Survivors of Child Welfare Network, this innovative and challenging Exhibition features the first-person testimonies of twelve Indigenous Survivors of the Scoop, and reflects upon their enduring strength and resilience.
