In the infamous Sixties Scoop, the Canadian government forcibly relocated tens of thousands of Indigenous children, separating them from their families and placing them in foster homes or adoptive households. Little Bird, a new show by Crave and APTN, premiering May 26, follows one young woman who was taken from her reserve in Saskatchewan at the age of five and raised in a Jewish home in Montreal, having her name changed from Bezhig Little Bird to Esther Rosenblum. In her 20s, Bezhig returns to the Prairies to find the family she lost and discover the secrets of her past.

Join us for an in-depth conversation about this poignant new program with acclaimed actor and producer Jennifer Podemski, who has First Nations and Jewish heritage, and who co-created Little Bird with playwright Hannah Moscovitch. Podemski will speak with Rivka Campbell, host of CJN podcast Rivkush, the only podcast dedicated to spotlighting Jews of colour, sponsored by the Canadian Race Relations Foundation.
