Screening: “Lost Nation: The Iowa 3”

Years before settlers discovered the Midwest’s vast seas of prairie, the native Ioway tribe dominated the land between the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. But settlement of the area led to forced removal of the Ioway from their homelands. Intermarriage, broken treaties, and the end of communal living led the tribe to split. Both tribes endured hardship and challenges to their traditions and culture to achieve successful land claims and self-determination in the 1970s.

The story of the Ioway has been told through a documentary series “Lost Nation: The Ioway” produced by award-winning filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle. The third installment of the series will be screened at Iowa Lakeside Laboratory on Tuesday, June 25 at 7 p.m. The free, public event will include a Q&A following the one-hour film.

Attendees will enjoy the story told in third film in the “Lost Nation: The Ioway” series whether or not they have seen the first and second films. The film contains mature themes and historical images that may be disturbing to young children.
