60s Scoop Project
It is important to know about the 60s Scoop and the effects it had on Indigenous families.
On May 28, 2018, a historic event took place were the Alberta Government publicly apologized to the families that were affected by 60s Scoop, in which Indigenous children were removed from their families and placed with mostly non-Indigenous families. Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta (SSISA) has worked with Alberta government to start the process to listen to those affected by the 60s Scoop to make the apology possible. The 60s Scoop Project will create an awareness of the history of the 60s Scoop and what effects it had on Indigenous families. We want to educate people about the 60s Scoop as a part of the continued acts of reconciliation to build a stronger Canada.
