For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. In Maine, an historic investigation—the first government-sanctioned truth and reconciliation commission (TRC) in the United States—begins a bold journey, gathering testimony and bearing witness to the dramatic impact of the state’s child welfare practices on local tribal families. DAWNLAND follows the TRC to witness intimate, sacred moments of truth-telling and healing - revealing the untold narrative of Indigenous child removal in the United States. USA, 2018
