AMERICA REFRAMED: Daughter of a Lost Bird
Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 11 p.m. on KPBS 2
Kendra, a Native adoptee, grew up assimilated in a loving, upper middle-class white family with little connection to her heritage. Now, as an adult with a family of her own, she embarks on a seven year journey to find her biological mother, April, and return to her Lummi homeland.
Together, Kendra and April, also a Native adoptee, navigate what it means to be Native and to belong to a tribe from the outside looking in. "Daughter of a Lost Bird" documents the complex process of finding oneself in the context of a history filled with both trauma and resiliency.
