Tuesday October 20th from 7:00-9:00pm
George Vari Engineering Building (245 Church Street), Room 103
The 60s scoop is a shameful and little-known era of Canadian history. Following on the heels of the century-long residential schools system, it saw thousands of First Nations children forcibly taken from their homes via the child welfare system. Dr. Raven Sinclair, herself an adoptee of the scoop, comes to Ryerson to raise awareness about this issue.
Dr. Sinclair discusses her latest film, There’s A Truth To Be Told, a project that involved collecting the stories of ‘60s scoop survivors. The event was moderated by Dr. Cyndy Baskin, Chair of the Aboriginal Education Council and Associate Professor at the School of Social Work at Ryerson University.
