In honor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, celebrated on October 11, the Antiracism Ministry Team Program Committee is pleased to present the film, Dawnland, on Tuesday, October 12, starting at 6:30 pm on Zoom.
Dawnland is a documentary that details the 20th century Indian Affairs law allowing social workers throughout the country to place Native American children in mostly white homes when it was determined that their parents were unfit. Dawnland tells the story of the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission which brought White and Native Americans together to discuss the harm caused by this law.

We hope you’ll join us to learn more and discuss the history of this ‘cultural genocide’. Columbus Day remains a widely celebrated holiday in the U.S., one that glorifies a false narrative of America’s discovery and ignores the damaging impact of genocide perpetrated against generations of Native Americans.
