Can reconciliation help heal the scars from childhoods lost? Dawnland is the untold story of Indigenous child removal in the US through the nation's first-ever government-endorsed truth and reconciliation commission, which investigated the devastating impact of Maine’s child welfare practices on the Wabanaki people. The Wabanaki are the people who are there to greet the light, "the people of the dawn," and their story brings to light how getting to the heart of the truth can offer a flicker of hope.
