Dawnland Film Screening and National Livestream Filmmaker Chat

This special DAWNLAND national screening event includes a free screening of the film, concert, and livestreamed filmmaker and film participant Q & A.

FILM DESCRIPTION
For decades, child welfare authorities have been forcibly 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 an unprecedented investigation. DAWNLAND goes behind-the-scenes as this historic body deals with difficult truths, questions the meaning of reconciliation, and charts a new course for state and tribal relations.

TO WATCH ONLINE
DAWNLAND is free to stream here: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/films/dawnland/ and on the PBS apps.
After the movie switch over to the Dawnland Facebook page to join a Facebook live Q & A and submit your questions.
