The Daughter of Dawn
I love learning about the history of film, especially lost or forgotten gems. Director Christopher Eilenstine of The Soulless had shared this article on Facebook and if you read it, you'll see how amazing this discovery is. Thank you, Chris for sharing this with us.
This silent film, The Daughter of Dawn, featured and all-Indian-cast. Some of the scenes feature authentic Native American dances and ceremonies. It was filmed in 1920 by Norbert Myles and casts the beautiful people of the Kiowa and Comanche Nations.
