Birth of a Family

Director: Tasha Hubbard

Release: 2017


“Birth of a Family” is a family-reunion film like you’ve never seen before. It chronicles the extraordinary   first meeting in decades of the four children of Mary Jane Adam, a Dene single mother from Saskatchewan.  All four were  victims of the notorious ‘Sixties Scoop’ in which the Canadian government plucked Indigenous children from their families and put them into foster homes where white parents raised them without contact to their heritage, languages, or traditions.  Director Tasha Hubbard captures a powerful event of restorative catharsis.      79 Minutes in length.
