Join the Abbe Museum education team for a celebration of Indigenous films each month as we gear up for the inaugural Abbe Museum Indian Market Film Festival coming to Bar Harbor this May 18-20. This lead-up series will feature three films, starting with this recently restored silent movie from 1920. Only shown a few times during its original run, it was feared lost until a copy was found in 2005. Set among the Kiowa people, the film reveals a love triangle between Dawn and two men from her tribe and demonstrates romantic tropes of Native peoples during this era in film history. Unlike later films in this genre, this renowned film features an all-Native cast and was shot in Indian country of SW Oklahoma. Admission is free but donations are welcomed.
