Topic: 'The Sixties Scoop; A Personal Story'
Tauni Sheldon was born to her Inuit parents from Nunavik but was taken at birth as a Sixties Scoop baby. She was raised by her qallunaat parents in Milton, Ontario. Tauni has spent her lifetime reconnecting with her biological family, while growing up in the "south". She became the first female Inuit pilot, having flown in the Arctic for Air Inuit Ltd.; and she has worked with federally incarcerated Inuit and Aboriginal men. Currently she works in a social capacity for all Inuit, and shares her Inuit culture. Tauni and her son embrace the Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit way of learning and she is reconciling her Inuit Rites of Passage.
