Dawnland - Trailer

Preview: Season 20 Episode 2 | 30s

Dawnland is the untold story of Indigenous child removal through the government-endorsed truth and reconciliation commission investigating the devastating impact of Maine’s child welfare practices on the Wabanaki people. Dawnland offers a painful reminder that the traumatic legacy of forced child removal goes far back, but also shows getting to the heart of the truth can offer a flicker of hope.
