Our experience of the Sixties Scoop
Keywords:Sixties Scoop, indigenous, indigenous peoples, adoption, Residential Schools, family, memory
We want to tell the story of how our mother/daughter relationship was affected by the Sixties Scoop of Indigenous children in Canada. We will each speak in our own unique voice, Ingrid’s words written in italics and Lydia’s in roman. Our memories are colored by the present and the past, by what we are learning now and what we knew then. In all of this we are attempting to “remember rightly” what happened then and what is happening now.
