Survivors of the Sixties Scoop adoption process will be gathering for the second time in North Battleford for a sharing circle.
Robert Doucette of the Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Saskatchewan says the first event in Meadow Lake a success, as it allowed some survivors for the first time to share their experience of the adoption process.
“This sharing circle, this first one, was the first opportunity for Sixties Scoop survivors to show up, to tell their story, to have somebody listen and at some point act on what they are actually saying to the participants in the sharing circle,” Doucette said. “With a lot of the stories being shared they’re [survivors] not alone. The path that they have journeyed and the common experiences that they have are a lot of the same experiences that most of the other survivors have experienced in their lifetime.”
