The 2nd National Bi-Giwen Indigenous Adoptee Gathering is here. It is an important unique event for Indigenous adoptees and their families and unlike any other specifically for those who identify with the 60’s scoop.

The gathering is for adoptees/foster care survivors who have been impacted by the 60’s scoop and their children.  To make this event successful we fund raise all year long by hosting events, presentations and seek donations from the community, unions and churches.
