Virtual Film Screening and Panel Discussion of “Bounty”


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 local libraries 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.
