Removed from their young Dene mother’s care as part of Canada’s infamous Sixties Scoop, Betty Ann, Esther, Rosalie and Ben were four of the 20,000 Indigenous children taken from their families between 1955 and 1985, to be either adopted into white families or to live in foster care. As the four siblings piece together their shared history, their connection deepens, bringing laughter with it, and their family begins to take shape.

Co-presented by the National Film Board, Dreamspeakers, the Art Gallery of Alberta, and Post Adoption Registry - Children’s Services, Government of Alberta.

Filmmaker in attendance.
