Dawnland: Screening and Discussion

November 15, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In recognition of National Native American Heritage Month, all are invited to a free screening of the Emmy award-winning documentary, Dawnland, followed by post-film discussion. From the Upstander Project, “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. 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 us in person for the film screening at 5 p.m. followed by a discussion at 6 p.m. To stream the film at home and join the discussion on Zoom, register for the Zoom meeting below to receive the streaming link and password by email.
