For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. As recently as the 1970’s, one in four Native children nationwide were living in non-Native foster care, adoptive homes, or boarding schools. Now, for the first time, they are being asked to share their stories.

The Emmy-award winning Dawnland follows the journey of Maine’s truth and reconciliation commission, the first government-sanctioned commission of its kind, as it gathers testimony and bears witness to the devastating impact of these practices on the state’s tribal communities.
