About this Item
Out of the Shadows
Dr. Maurice, Sixties Scoop Advocate, Author, Educator, Survivor and Warrior wrote her story and book The Lost Children: A Nation's Shame in 2014. With one woman's journey, a searchlight was cast on a child welfare era where over 20,000 Indigenous and Métis children were placed into foster care and/or adoption situations throughout Canada, North America and the world. This massive and wrongful removal practice is known as the Sixties Scoop and specifically, the Adopt Indian Métis program in Saskatchewan, Canada. In 2019, Dr. Maurice authored and edited Out of the Shadows: Stories by Sixties Scoop Warriors, Volume One which highlights Sixties Scoop Warrior Stories. Out of the Shadows: Stories by Sixties Scoop Warriors, Volume Two chronicles the phenomenal resilience of Authors and how they survived so many traumas. Yet these Contributors emulate courage, compassion and wisdom. What will strike the audience is the Authors' pain and suffering while witnessing their transformation into Warriors as each person finds their way out of a dark past. This book is critical reading for all who want to understand the trauma to children and families when they are torn apart. It is also essential reading for individuals who are beginning and/or continuing their healing journey, their search for a sense of place, belonging and identity, coming home and, for allies in healing. This book is a devastating and stark reminder that currently, thousands of Indigenous and Métis children in North American and worldwide are experiencing child welfare policies and practices which are tragically known as a Millennium Scoop.
