Sixties Scoop art exhibit healing hearts of survivors


The idea came from a Facebook group for Sixties Scoop survivors. The Sixties Scoop happened in Canada from the 1960s to the late 1980s. Thousands of Indigenous children were taken from their parents; the majority placed with non-Indigenous families. Earlier this week, a group of artists and Sixties Scoop survivors met in person. The artists, from across Western Canada, held an exhibition of their work called Darkness and Light: Survivor Art of the Sixties Scoop, at Mount Royal University in Calgary.
