For decades, child welfare authorities have been removing Native American children from their homes to save them from being Indian. In Maine, the first official “truth and reconciliation commission” in the United States begins a historic investigation. National News & Documentary Emmy® award winning film DAWNLAND goes behind-the-scenes as this historic body grapples with difficult truths, redefines reconciliation, and charts a new course for state and tribal relations.
Join TRC commissioner Sandy White Hawk (Sicangu Lakota), TRC commissioner gkisedtanamoogk (Mashpee Wampanoag), and film participant Esther Anne of Wabanaki REACH for a live conversation and Q&A after the film. This event will take place on the International Day for Peace.
