Colleen Cardinal and her son Sage Cree are raising funds to travel with us from Ottawa to Edmonton, with stops along the way in Sault Ste. Marie, Winnipeg, Regina and Saskatoon. Each location is critical to telling their family’s story, and also the story of an estimated 20,000 other Indigenous individuals who were forcibly removed from their families as children and adopted into non-Indigenous families from the late 1950’s to early 1980’s. Because the majority of forced adoptions occurred in the 1960’s, this period is now known as the Sixties Scoop.
