August 18, 2014, (originally posted) April 14, 2014, In support of First Nations Repatriation Institute-Sandy White Hawk and in partnership with downtown NYC office of Union Square Strategic, a public affairs and business development firm headquartered in Washington, DC, we are in the earliest stages of developing pow wow to take place in Long Island, NY area.
For the last 10 years, the First Nations Repatriation Institute pow wows to ‘welcome home adoptees’ have taken place on an annual basis in the Midwest.
The purpose of the NYC-area pow wow is to unite North American Indian Adoptees, and especially USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops, with one another and assist them in reuniting with their biological families.
For USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canada Scoops, sharing of information, including how some have obtained their North American Indian Status cards, Blood Quantum Letters, certified copies of original birth certificates (biological parents names), TRC-Canada recognition of their status as victims of Canada Scoops, and, as a result, their USA Citizenship on basis of being a victim of Canada Scoops will be encouraged.
Our best estimate is that this event will take place as early as October 2014 or Spring-Summer-Fall 2015. Details will post on this blog as they become available.
Though we are reaching out to qualified, interested sponsors, we can not accept individual donations for this event.
As more details become available, we will post on this blog.
