Dawnland Film Screening and Q&A Panel
Thursday, March 7 | 7 p.m.
Lawrence Public Library, 707 Vermont St.
Lawrence, KS
For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. Many children experienced devastating emotional and physical harm by adults who mistreated them and tried to erase their cultural identity. The film follows the Maine Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s travels to contemporary Wabanaki communities to witness intimate, sacred moments of truth-telling and healing, and reveals the untold narrative of Indigenous child removal in the United States. A panel Q&A will follow.
Free and open to the public. Light refreshments offered. Sponsored by the KU Indigenous Cultures Festival, the Ermal Garinger Academic Resource Center, the KU School of Social Welfare and the Lawrence Public Library.
