The “Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta” (SSISA), in partnership with the Cranbrook History Centre and the Cranbrook Public Library is bringing the Bi-Giwen: Coming Home – Truth Telling from the Sixties Scoop exhibition to BC communities.

A short opening ceremony and unveiling will be held at 10am. All are welcome to attend.
