Film Screening: "Dawnland"
A documentary about cultural survival and stolen children by Adam Mazo and Ben Pender-Cudlip. Nominated for two Emmy Awards.
For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. Many children experienced devastating emotional and physical harm by adults who mistreated them and tried to erase their cultural identity. Now, for the first time, they are being asked to share their stories.
Post screening discussion with Senior Advisor Chris Newell (Pequot Museum Education Supervisor).
