First Light

Season 12 Episode 6 | 14m 08s

For centuries, the United States government has taken Native American children away from their tribes, devastating parents and denying children their traditions, culture, and identity. First Light documents these practices from the 1800s to today and tells the story of an unprecedented experiment in truth-telling and healing for Wabanaki people and child welfare workers in Maine.

Aired: 10/07/20 | Expires: 11/08/20
