Canada: Identity, belonging, purpose, key to kids well-being, says Sixties Scoop survivor
CBC News – February 22, 2017
The woman who led thousands of Indigenous adoptees to a hard-won victory in the Sixties Scoop lawsuit says she could not have done it if she had not reconnected with her roots. Marcia Brown Martel was the lead plaintiff in an eight-year court battle that ended Feb. 14, when a judge said that Canada breached its duty of care to 16,000 First Nations children in Ontario who were placed in non-Indigenous care by child welfare agencies between 1965 and 1984.
