Native American children are more than twice as likely as non-Native children to be taken from their families and put into foster care. In Maine, a group of Native and non-Native leaders came together to acknowledge and address the abuses suffered by Native children in the hands of the child welfare system. Dawnland is the story of the historic Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and illuminates the ongoing crisis of indigenous child removal.

Discussion and Q&A following screening with: 

Antoinette Fabela

Antoinette Fabela is of Ojibwa, Aztec and Mayo ancestry and lives in Auburn, California where she works as an Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) CORE trainer, ICWA Qualified Expert Witness (QEW), advocate, and consultant. She has provided QEW training for the American Indian Resource Center in Oakland, the National Indian Justice Center in Santa Rosa, and other ICWA training for individual tribes in Northern and Southern California, and she worked as an Emergency Response/On-Going Native Services Social Worker in Placer County for 15 years.
