Eric Wardell, an Indigenous man, was taken from his parents at just three weeks old, in what is known in Canada as the “sixties scoop.” In this first-person story, Wardell explores his identity—what it means to discover who you are, and how your past can shape your future. The story is part of the ‘Turning Point’ series: stories by Indigenous people in partnership with the Global Reporting Centre.
