âpahkowâyânaw: Indigenous Education Sessions: The 60’s Scoop
November 30th, 2:00 - 3:30 pm Saskatchewan time (1:00 - 2:30 PM (MST)
Indigenous children are drastically overrepresented in the child welfare system in Canada. This overrepresentation began in the 60’s and has continued today, with 52.2% of children in foster care being Indigenous despite only accounting for 7.7% of the child population (Statistics Canada 2016). In this session, we talk about the Sixties Scoop and the impact of child welfare policies on Indigenous families in Canada.
The guest speaker is Sharon Gladue, Former Professional Consultant at Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta (SSISA) and a part of the 60's Scoop group of children from Saskatchewan.
There will be a Question and Answer period at the end of the program.
