First Light Preview

Today the Upstander Project is releasing the preview of First Light, the debut film in the Dawnland series, which is anchored by the feature film Dawnland slated for release in early 2017.

First Light independently documents the work of the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the first such task force in US history to investigate issues important to Native Americans. The commission was dedicated to uncovering and acknowledging the truth about what happened to Wabanaki children and families involved with the child welfare system.

We welcome your comments, reflections, and questions.
