Event Details

DAWNLAND

A documentary about cultural survival and stolen children

For over 100 years, the United States government has systematically removed American Indian children from their homes and communities to be raised by white families. Recently, the first government-sanctioned child welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was formed in Maine. DAWNLAND documents Maine’s TRC journey, as it begins to address the devastating impact child welfare practices have had on the Wabanaki Confederacy, and searches for justice and healing. See dawnland.org for more information.

 

April 8th 5 - 8 pm or April 13th 11:30 am - 2:30 pm
U of M St Paul Student Center Theatre
2017 Buford Avenue
St Paul, MN 55108

Sandy Whitehawk (Sicangu Lakota) will facilitate a discussion following the film. Sandy played an integral part of the TRC work in Maine and continues to support reconciliation efforts around the country, including Minnesota.
