Speaker: Mishy Lesser (Learning Director of the Upstander Project and Educational Fellow at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut)

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.

Co-Sponsored by the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies; Center for Gender, Race and Area Studies; the departments of English, History, Political Science and Higgins School of Humanities.
