Sandy White Hawk served as a Commissioner for the Maine Truth Commission. At 18 months, Sandy was removed from her Sicangu Lakota relatives and taken to live with a Christian missionary couple 400 miles away, where her skin color and cultural heritage were rejected. Blood Memory explores Sandy’s adoption and reconnection with her Lakota community and identity.
Dawnland is a documentary about the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). Film makers Adam Mazo and Ben Pender-Cudlip follow the TRC to contemporary Wabanaki communities to witness intimate, sacred moments of truth-telling and healing.
