Birth of a Family NFB documentary by Tasha Hubbard

The Faculty of Education Indigenous Film Series presents Birth of a Family: The Story of a Family Reunion by 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.

Tasha Hubbard is a First Nations/M├ętis filmmaker and educator living in Saskatoon, whose credits include two National Film Board of Canada documentaries exploring Indigenous rights in Canada: Two Worlds Colliding, a Canada Award-winning short film about the Saskatoon freezing deaths,[1] and most recently the 2017 feature-length documentary Birth of a Family, about four siblings separated during Canada's Sixties Scoop.
