The SIXTIES SCOOP INDIGENOUS SOCIETY OF ALBERTA (SSISA) will promote reconciliation, healing, education & advocacy of survivors & their families through the inclusion of all Indigenous people by lobbying so the actions of the 60’s scoop never happens again.
The Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta (SSISA) supports those disconnected through the 60’s Scoop by empowering them to achieve a sense of identity as Indigenous people.
