Dawnland: Documentary Film Screening and Discussion
The Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission, the first government-sanctioned truth and reconciliation commission (TRC) in the United States, was established in 2012 to investigate what happened to Wabanaki families in Maine’s child welfare system. Dawnland follows the work of the five Native and non-Native commissioners as they travel across the state to gather testimony and bear witness to the devastating stories of Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot children whose cultural identities were nearly erased.
With exclusive access to the groundbreaking process and never-before-seen footage, the film reveals how state power continues to be used to break up Wabanaki families, and how the TRC seeks to plot a new direction.
In 2015, Bowdoin College became the official repository of the archival records of the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission. Following the screening, Adam Mazo, one of the filmmakers, and Esther Anne, a participant in the film, will be on hand to discuss the making of the film, the work of the TRC, and the ongoing importance of documenting the commission’s process and telling and retelling the stories of the Wabanaki people.
Truth, Healing, and Change: A Discussion about Why the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Matters
Join Dawnland director Adam Mazo and film participant Esther Anne in a discussion about the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC), its historic work to uncover the devasting impact of Maine’s child welfare practices on families in Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot tribal communities, and ongoing efforts by Maine-Wabanaki REACH to heal and strengthen those communities and to resist the cultural erasure exposed by the TRC. First Light, a short documentary that introduces the TRC and its work, will be shown, and a selection of archival materials from the TRC Archives, which are housed at Bowdoin College, will be on view.
