Event Details

  • Date:

Join us for a virtual screening of the 9-minute documentary film, Bounty, followed by a panel discussion.

In Bounty, Penobscot parents and children commemorate their survival by reading and reacting to the Phip’s Proclamation, a government-issued proclamation that motivated colonial settlers to hunt, scalp and murder Indigenous people.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Mishy Lesser the Learning Director of the Upstander Project; Gkisedtanamoogk, Mashpee Wampanoag, co-chair ; Maine Wabanaki from the State Child Welfare Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and Linda Coombs, Aquinnah Wampanoag, Museum Educator and Historian.

Presented by the Mashpee Public Library, Falmouth Public Library, Woods Hole Public Library and L.I.N.K – a local group dedicated to the belief that when we can come together in respectful, trusting, committed relations we can link Indigenous and Non-Indigenous knowledge in a way that can move all of life towards a safer, more balanced and wholesome future.
