EventsInside Story: Sixties Scoop Network with Colleen Hele Cardinal

Thursday, January 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


“The trafficking of Indigenous children through the child welfare policies known as the 60s scoop caused tremendous harm, yet Canada has swept us under the rug without acknowledgement or apology,” says Colleen Hele Cardinal, Sixties Scoop Network Director.

Come hear the inside story as Colleen Hele Cardinal tells the truth about the 60s scoop, the resilience of the survivors and the road to justice and reconciliation that the Sixties Scoop Network is building.

7:00 – 8:30 PM EST

Online. All are welcome.

The Sixties Scoop Network released 12 groundbreaking in-depth video interviews with Sixties Scoop survivors on National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21, 2023. The videos are part of its In our own Words: Mapping the Sixties Scoop Diaspora project, funded by the  Sixties Scoop Healing Foundation. KAIROS collaborated with the Sixties Scoop Network to help secure this funding for this important initiative.

The videos provide first-hand accounts of the displacement of survivors from their families and nations into non-Indigenous adoptive and foster homes across Canada and the globe.

“These videos are only the beginning – we hope these Sixties Scoop survivors’ stories create awareness in the hearts and minds of all Canadians and move them to support us as we heal and strive for justice, recognition and reconciliation.”

Come listen to first-hand experiences, learn about the project and the network, ask questions, and be part of the movement striving for that justice and reconciliation.
