The New Commons Film Series: DAWNLAND
October 3, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The New Commons Film Series presents the 2018 Emmy-nominated documentary DAWNLAND, a powerful exploration of the US government’s forcible removal of Native American children from their homes. As recently as the 1970’s, one in four Native children nationwide were living in non-Native foster care, adoptive homes, or boarding schools. Many children experienced devastating emotional and physical harm by adults who mistreated them and tried to erase their cultural identity. DAWNLAND provides a space for them to share their stories for the first time.
