Description

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.

A conversation and Q&A with co-director Ben Pender-Cudlip, film participant Dawn Neptune Adams and learning director Dr. Mishy Lesser follows the screening.

This special Salem Film Fest presentation is generously supported by the Peabody Essex Museum and hospitality sponsor The Salem Waterfront Hotel and Suites, in conjunction with Community Partners: the Massachusetts Center for Native American Awareness, the North American Indian Center of Boston, Voices Against Injustice (formerly Salem Award Foundation) and Salem No Place for Hate.
