The last time Karrie Wurmann visited Carcross, Yukon, was in 1994. That was the first time she visited since she was a child, and also the first time she met her biological family — she was adopted when she was only 10 months old. Today, she has heard the stories of other Indigenous adoptees like her and recognizes that she was part of what is known as the Sixties Scoop.
