THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN – All Native American Film from 1920

by Red Cell

Re-released and screened last month at the Dead Center Film Festival in Oklahoma City, The Daughter Of Dawn is an 80-minute, six-reel silent 1920 film starring an all-Native American cast with about 300 Kiowas and Comanches involved, many in their 60s and 70s. Shot in the Wichita Mountains of south west Oklahoma in July 1920, the ultra rare film that historian had thought lost forever, had not been screened since October 1920, at the College Theater in Los Angeles. The two main roles in the film are played by son and daughter of the great Comanche leader Quanah Parker, White and Wanada Parker
