The Sixties Scoop (1951–1984) was an assimilation project led by the Canadian federal and provincial governments to eradicate indigenous identity. More than 20,000 children were taken from their families into various foster care systems in North America and abroad. The documentary provides background to the phenomenon and takes viewers behind the scenes of the related TV series, Little Bird. Directors Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers and Zoe Hopkins as well as the rest of the production team share their thoughts on trauma and recovery.
