Dawnland & Dear Georgiana

WED, JULY 8

ONLINE EVENT

7PM – 9PM

Upstander Project and Revolutionary Spaces present the Emmy Award winning film DAWNLAND and DEAR GEORGINA followed by a live Q & A

For decades, child welfare authorities have been removing Native American children from their homes to save them from being Indian. In Maine, the first official “truth and reconciliation commission” in the United States begins a historic investigation. DAWNLAND goes behind-the-scenes as this historic body grapples with difficult truths, redefines reconciliation, and charts a new course for state and tribal relations.

In DEAR GEORGINA a Passamaquoddy elder journeys into an unclear past to better understand herself and her cultural heritage.

Join Elizabeth Solomon (Massachusett), Roger Paul (Passamaquoddy/Maliseet, lecturer in Native American Studies, University of Maine), filmmaker Adam Mazo, and Upstander Project Learning Director Mishy Lesser for a live Q & A after the films. The conversation will be moderated by Cedric Woods (citizen of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina, and director of the Institute for New England Native American Studies).

Learn more about the films and watch the trailer at upstanderproject.org.

Note the screening begins with the 54-minute broadcast edition of DAWNLAND followed by DEAR GEORGINA.
