The marginalization of Native Americans wasn’t simply a crime of our country’s distant, unenlightened past. The documentary Dawnland chronicles the effort in one state, Maine, to come to terms with a practice that endured through most of the 20th century, when welfare workers removed Wabanaki children from their families and placed them in foster care – presuming that assimilation into white society would improve their quality of life and offer them a better future.

Join KCPT for a free screening and discussion of the film at the Plaza Branch of the Kansas City Public Library on Saturday, November 3 at 2 p.m.
