Summer Teacher Workshop

June 16, 2019

Wabanaki in Maine

This workshop for middle and high school teachers will explore contemporary and historical issues of importance to the Wabanaki people and non-Native Mainers. The workshop includes a screening of DAWNLAND, as well as a visit to Maine Historical Society’s exhibit HOLDING UP THE SKY.

For most of the 20th century, government agents systematically forced Native American children from their homes and placed them with white families. Now, for the first time, they are telling their stories. DAWNLAND is a documentary film about cultural survival and stolen children: inside the first truth and reconciliation commission for Native Americans in U.S. history.

Participants will receive a discount on the purchase of the film, learn to use the film’s companion online learning resources, and receive orientation in primary and secondary source analysis, gaining valuable insights into interactive teaching and discussion techniques that can be applied in the classroom.

Presenters include Dr. Mishy Lesser, Upstander Project’s Learning Director and author of the Dawnland Teacher’s Guide and Adam Mazo, Director of the Upstander Project and Co-director and Producer of Dawnland. This FREE workshop will be held at Maine Historical Society on Thursday, June 27, 9am-3pm. Advanced registration is required.
