“A Place Between – A 60’s Scoop Arts Project” (running April 7 to April 29 at Urban Shaman Gallery and throughout the city centre) featuring over twenty contemporary Indigenous artists who have produced artworks, performances, writing, and films in which they each describe a myriad of experiences on being adopted out or placed in care.

With the recognition that dealing with the 60’s Scoop is a move towards healing and reconciliation, and as the first and largest group exhibition that has a focus that spans from the 60’s Scoop in Canada to issues that currently exist of Indigenous children forcibly removed from their homes. The Urban Shaman Gallery is cognizant that here in Winnipeg there is a need to socially engage and involve the community.

– This short documentary is a moving tribute to Richard Cardinal, an Métis adolescent who committed suicide in 1984. Taken from his home at the age of 4 due to family problems, he spent the rest of his 17 short years moving in and out of 28 foster homes, group homes and shelters in Alberta. A sensitive, articulate young man, Richard Cardinal left behind a diary upon which this film is based.

Barry (Whitecap) Hambly
Biography:
Barry (Whitecap) Hambly was born in 1967 on Carry The Kettle First Nation in Saskatchewan. A child of the “Sixties Scoop,” who experienced a loss of his Aboriginal heritage, abuse from a foster home, emotional scars and was shuffled from 10 different foster homes before being adopted into a family of British descent at the age of nine. Struggling throughout his adolescents, Hambly began his journey to search for his birth parents and cultural identity. Red Road is produced by Lost Heritage Productions in association with Life Network, and with the financial participation of the Canadian Television Fund.

Film: “Red Road: Ocangu-sa the Barry Hambly Story” (2009) 47 mins
– When Barry was four, his mother, Darlene Whitecap, ran from the reserve and an abusive relationship, taking Barry and his three siblings with her to Regina, 100km to the west. A victim of alcohol abuse, the 24-year-old mother would soon lose her children when social agencies intervened. This era, known as the “Sixties Scoop.” Red Road shadows Barry Hambly’s journey, returning to Saskatchewan to confront his past and meet his birth Mother. Red Road is produced by Lost Heritage Productions in association with Life Network, and with the financial participation of the Canadian Television Fund (CTF).
