This week hosts Koji Steven Sakai and M. Martin Mapoma brought on Sandra Wilson. In this first episode, we got to know Sandra, who spoke about the “Sixties Scoop” program, the mass removal of Aboriginal Canadian children from their families into the child welfare system, which she was unknowingly apart of.
