Dawnland

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.
