Throughout the 1960s, the Canadian government took aboriginal children out of their homes on the reservations, and sent them to live with white families. The name, "Sixties Scoop," was originally used by Canadian author, Patrick Johnston, to describe the mass amounts of first nation children, who were removed from their communities, and left to the child welfare system.

At one point in his life, he had a serious identity crisis, and was determined to prove to people that he was Indian. Hayden Taylor stated that, "like most insecure people and specially a blue-eyed Native writer, I went through a particularly severe identity crisis at one point. In fact, ...
