The Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta will be at Augustana on November 4 for a 60s Scoop Engagement Session Workshop.
From the Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta:
As we developed the What Was Lost: Reflections From the 60s Scoop Experiential Exercise, we were honoured to have Sixties Scoop Survivors bravely share their lives. This Exercise shows a lifetime of impacts as a result of the Sixties Scoop. It is built by survivors, whose ideas brought the need for public awareness and education about the Sixties Scoop to light. Thank you to REACH Edmonton and the Public Library Services Branch (Alberta Municipal Affairs) for partnering with us to take this Exercise to a number of libraries across Alberta.
Through their individual realities (still faced each day), survivors have shared the impact that Child Welfare System has had on them. They share their stories so that all Canadians gain a greater understanding and awareness of what we lost. As well, having their stories recognized also includes having survivors voices finally heard – a form of healing for each individual that courageously shared.”
Monday, November 4
10 am to 4 pm
Wahkohtowin Lodge, Lower Level Forum, Augustana Campus
Presented by the Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta, in partnership with the Camrose Public Library.
