On April 2, 2020, Governor Jay Inslee announced an extension of the stay-at-home order due to COVID-19 through May 4. Even in you’re not in Washington State, unless you’re an essential worker, it’s still recommended to stay at home to “flatten the curve” and protect those most vulnerable. It takes us a while to put events on our calendar — and it takes a while for us to take them off. As some local events are going to online format at this time, we’re trying to identify some and add them to the calendar while we mark other events as cancelled. If you see a live event here before May 4, assume that it’s cancelled and we haven’t got around to removing it yet. Please double-check the event website for events after that time as some Summer events are being cancelled as well. Thank you, stay home, and stay healthy!

Join us in Thomas Berry Hall for a film screening and discussion of DAWNLAND, a film exploring the devastation of Indigenous child removal from the early 20th Century through the Scoop era and into the present. The film goes in depth with the first government-sanctioned truth and reconciliation commission (TRC) in the United States, assembled in Maine. DAWNLAND follows the commission as it undertakes this historic investigation and bears witness to Wabanaki families whose experiences have been profoundly shaped by generations of systematic child removal.

Rebecca Black, 2nd generation Scoop survivor, and Carol Wishcamper, Maine TRC member, will be with us for the screening and discussion.

The Details
We invite you to arrive at 5 pm for this film screening and discussion.

5:30 program start

7:30- 8:30 discussion

We’ll provide coffee and tea. We know this event falls right at the dinner hour, and we invite you to bring your dinner or any snacks that will support your wellbeing during the showing!

After the film, we’ll have an hour of discussion with hosts Rebecca Black and Carol Wishcamper.
