Event Description:
From Residential Schools to Child Welfare: The Sixties and Millennial Scoop
Elizabeth Best, MA’18, PhD candidate Department of History, York University
Throughout the post-war period, the Canadian federal government targeted Indigenous children through the child welfare system as residential schools shut down across the country. Starting in the 1960s and continuing to this day, Indigenous children were taken from their communities under the auspices of child welfare and placed in non-Indigenous foster homes. In 2019, Indigenous children continue to be over represented in care. Elizabeth will lay down the academic history of the Sixties Scoop from the perspective of an Indigenous millennial who was raised in foster care in the 1990s.
