The Daughter of Dawn

Directed by Norbert Myles
Year: 1920
Country: U.S.
Language: Silent (English intertitles)

After disappearing for nearly a century, THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN returns to once again break boundaries for Native American cinema. An all-Indigenous cast directed by Norbert Myles tell the story of a love triangle amidst rising conflict between Kiowa and Comanche villages, featuring thrilling fight scenes, dance performances and more. Newly restored in 2K by the Oklahoma Historical Society, this subtly acted, beautifully conducted silent melodrama remains revelatory for its dedication to the stories of real Indigenous peoples.
