Follow the first government-sanctioned truth and reconciliation commission in the U.S. which investigates the devastating impact of Maine’s child welfare practices on Native American communities.

Indie Lens Pop-Up is a neighborhood series that brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. Featuring documentaries seen on PBS's Independent Lens, Indie Lens Pop-Up draws local residents, leaders, and organizations together to discuss what matters most, from newsworthy topics to family and relationships. Make friends, share stories, and join the conversation.

Join us for a conversation following the film screening facilitated by Dr. Margaret Noodin, associate professor in English and American Indian Studies at UW-Milwaukee (evening session only) and Renee Gralewicz, associate professor in Anthropology-Sociology and American Indian Studies at UW-Fox Valley.
