On October 6, 2017 Chief Marcia Brown Martel stood beside Carolyn Bennett, the Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs, as she announced a historic “agreement in principle” for all Canadian children who were taken from their homes and had their identities taken from them in the Sixties Scoop.

The agreement is unique in establishing an endowment of at least $50 million for an Indigenous Healing Foundation—an outcome Chief Martel has championed for many years. The foundation will focus on providing culturally appropriate counselling and traditional healing services, while also carrying forward the memory and lessons of the Sixties Scoop for generations to come.
