Tacan takes issue with '60s Scoop settlement

Sioux Valley Dakota Nation Chief Vince Tacan says a recent settlement reached in federal court will not be enough to support the survivors of the ’60s Scoop.

“I think it’s going to leave survivors with a lot of unresolved issues in terms of being able to tell their story and what they believe is fair compensation,” he said.

On Friday, a federal judge approved a $875-million settlement for Indigenous people who were taken from their families and placed in non-Indigenous foster homes between 1951 and 1991 in what has been referred to as the ’60s Scoop.

This includes $750 million for the survivors, $50 million for an Indigenous healing foundation and $75 million for legal fees.
