Upstander Project presents the Emmy Award winning film DAWNLAND and DEAR GEORGINA + a live Q & A
FREE event. Optional donations support Upstander Project.
Sponsored by Boston Athenaeum
This screening is a celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day
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 filmmaker Adam Mazo and Upstander Project Learning Director Mishy Lesser with special guests producer N. Bruce Duthu, TRC commissioner Sandy White Hawk, and lecturer in Native American Studies Roger Paul for a live Q & A after the films. This screening is a celebration of Indigenous People’s Day.
