The Office of Indigenous Affairs and the National Film Board of Canada present the film screening of Tasha Hubbard's award winning film Birth of a Family. 

"Three sisters and a brother, adopted as infants into separate families across North America, meet together for the first time in the deeply moving documentary by director Tasha Hubbard. 

Removed from their young Dene mother's care as part of Canada's infamous Sixties Scoop, Betty Ann, Esther, Rosalie and Ben were four of the 20,000 Indigenous children taken from their families between 1955 and 1985, to be either adopted into white families or to live in foster care. As the four siblings piece together their shared history, their connection deepens, bringing laughter with it, and their family begins to take shape." - National Film Board of Canada
