The View from the Boat and the View from the Shore: Native peoples and Truth and Reconciliation in New England

During this interactive presentation by the founders of Upstander Project, Dr. Mishy Lesser and Mr. Adam Mazo, participants will watch First Light and discuss the relationship between dispossession of Native land and the forced removal of Native children, and the lessons learned from the Maine Wabanaki-State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Participants will also examine Upstander Project’s online resources about Indian Boarding Schools and forced assimilation of Native children, and discuss how they might adapt them to the classroom.
