Dawnland: A Documentary about Cultural Survival and Stolen Children

October 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dedham Indigenous Peoples Day Film Screening: Dawnland

In celebration of Indigenous Peoples Day in Dedham, a coalition of organizations is hosting a screening of the Emmy-award winning documentary film “Dawnland” A story of stolen children and cultural survival.

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.

We will be joined by Elizabeth Solomon, of the Massachusett Tribe at Ponkapoag, to speak after the film.

Admission is free, donations welcome.

As we will be indoors, we request that attendees wear a mask.
