Disapponting: And We Thought We Were Working Together
May 17, 2015 § Leave a comment
May 17, 2015, We were just informed that during the last week, a week during which we believed we were beginning to work with the Pearl S Buck International foundation to better inform – through the Lincoln Center production Pearl: The Musical – the public as to Pearl S Buck’s key role in the transit of Canada Scoop Victims to USA, a.k.a., USA Placed Victims – Survivors of Canadian Scoops, that all reference to Pearl S Buck and Pearl S Buck’s Welcome House Adoption Agency within the topic of Sixties Scoops, Canada Scoops in Wikipedia has been deleted.
Of course the information provided is fully referenced, and Wikipedia is researching who exactly, origin of ISP address made that deletion. In the meantime, of course, the reference to Pearl S Buck (see below) has been restored and will continue to be restored every time it is deleted.
During the 1960’s and within her Welcome House, Inc. role, Buck was an important figure in the Sixties Scoops, a.k.a. Canada Scoops, i.e., brokering what were later discovered to be the transfer of North American Indian children from Canada to USA without the consent of their biological families and while their biological families were demanding to know where they were and for their return. For example, the original placement of Taber Gregory, the 1st of the Canadian Scoop, Sixties Scoops Victims to be placed in USA to be recognized by Truth and Reconciliation Commission – Canada and USCIS, was brokered by Buck via her Welcome House adoption agency. (Tim Fontaine, Aboriginal Peoples Television Network – APTN, Tim Fontaine, 2012). A few years after the Sixties Scoops ‘adoptions’ were processed by Buck and Welcome House, Inc., Welcome House, Inc. was shut down by the U.S. federal government due to ‘paperwork errors’; Welcome House Inc. was dissolved and later reopened as Pearl S Buck Foundation and Pearl S Buck International and resumed it’s role in the process of international adoptions.
