Join Us for the Nevada Premiere of Dawnland

Oct. 29, 2018


Dawnland is a feature documentary about cultural survival and stolen children.

For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families.  As recently as the 1970’s, one in four Native children nationwide were living in non-Native foster care, adoptive homes, or boarding schools.  Many children experienced devastating emotional and physical harm by adults who mistreated them and tried to erase their cultural identity.  Now, for the first time, they are being asked to share their stories.

The American Indian Alliance and the American Indian Research and Education Center are proud to present the Nevada premiere of Dawnland, in partnership with the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art.

Prior to the screening, UNLV Professors Addie C. Rolnick and William Bauer will give presentations and participate in a Q&A session.  Rolnick specializes in Indian law and critical race theory, while Bauer, a citizen of the Round Valley Reservation, teaches American Indian History.
