The exhibit will be unveiled and open to the public at 11:00 am.
Between the 1950s and the 1990s, thousands of Indigenous children were apprehended from their homes by government child intervention services and placed in non-indigenous foster homes. These children were disconnected from their families, communities, culture and language and some suffered abuse, neglect, and mistreatment. Many refer to the Sixties Scoop as a continuation of the residential school system; Indigenous children are still disproportionately represented in the Child Welfare system. Twelve of these survivors share their personal stories in this exhibition.
This is an in-person exhibit. Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell. Masks are required.
