A fascinating account concerning the adoption of an Indigenous girl has been recorded and filmed for several years and shares how she reconnects with her biological family.

MISSOULA, Mont. – It’s opening weekend for the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, kicking off with a showcase of documentaries from around the world.

One of the films lined up this year, “Daughter of a Lost Bird,” is a documentary that deals with adoption and aims to open up conversations about identity and reconnecting with one’s cultural heritage and the challenges that come along with it.

The film walks us through the life of Kendra, an indigenous woman adopted out of her community, now reconnecting with her biological family and roots.

For Montanans seeing this for the first time, filmmaker Brooke Pepion Swaney hopes the film offers audiences another perspective on how adoption impacts indigenous communities.
