Join us in Thomas Berry Hall for a film screening and discussion of DAWNLAND, a film exploring the devastation of Indigenous child removal from the early 20th Century through the Scoop era and into the present. The film goes in depth with the first government-sanctioned truth and reconciliation commission (TRC) in the United States, assembled in Maine. DAWNLAND follows the commission as it undertakes this historic investigation and bears witness to Wabanaki families whose experiences have been profoundly shaped by generations of systematic child removal.

Rebecca Black, 2nd generation Scoop survivor, and Carol Wishcamper, Maine TRC member, will be with us for the screening and discussion.
