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.

In DEAR GEORGINA a Passamaquoddy elder journeys into an unclear past to better understand herself and her cultural heritage.

Join filmmaker Adam Mazo, producer N. Bruce Duthu (Houma), film participant Sandy White Hawk (Sicangu Lakota), educator and linguist Roger Paul (Passamaquoddy), and Akomawt Educational Initiative founding member endawnis Spears (Diné, Ojibwe, Chickasaw, Choctaw) for a live Q & A after the films. This screening is a celebration of Indigenous People’s Day.
