    Maine-Wabanaki REACH and the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Augusta invite you to an interactive story-telling experience. We will learn about events in the colonizing history of Wabanaki people (the Indigenous people of Maine) and Europeans and their descendants.

    This is a participatory program appropriate for adults and teens. Our goal is to increase our understanding of colonization.

    Dawnland, A film by ADAM MAZO and BEN PENDER-CUDLIP

     A Documentary About Cultural Survival and Stolen Children - The Story of the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).

     "In Maine, a historic investigation—the first government-sanctioned truth and reconciliation commission in the United States—begins a bold journey. For over two years, Native and non-Native commissioners travel across Maine. They gather testimony and bear witness to the devastating impact of the state’s child welfare practices on families in Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot tribal communities. Collectively, these tribes make up the Wabanaki people." - Adam Mazo / Ben Pender-Cudlip                   

    The feature-length documentary Dawnland follows the TRC to contemporary Wabanaki communities to witness intimate, sacred moments of truth-telling and healing. With exclusive access to this groundbreaking process and never-before-seen footage, the film reveals the untold narrative of Indigenous child removal in the United States.

    Carol Wishcamper, Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare TRC Commissioner and Penthea Burns, Maine-Wabanaki REACH Board Member, will facilitate a follow up discussion with Q&A.
