Film screening at Ellsworth church

ELLSWORTH — The Mid-Maine Unitarian Universalist Youth Group and the UU Peace and Social Action Committee will present a showing of the documentary “Dawnland” on Saturday, April 20, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth.

A reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. before the 6:30 showing of the 86-minute film. The documentary will be followed by a question-and-answer session facilitated by Dawn Neptune Adams.

Dawn lived on Indian Island, a reservation of the Penobscot Nation. When she was a 4-year-old child, she and her younger brother were abandoned by a baby sitter near the reservation and, as a result, entered the foster care system. She was subjected to extreme prejudice, punishment, and attempts to eradicate her Penobscot heritage.

All are welcome to attend. There is no admission fee, but donations will be accepted.

Contact Doug Bird at 479-6652 or Jeff Jeude, UU church administrator, at 667-4393 for more information.
